I have a lot of things going on in the studio (ADD? possibly). It is fun to have several projects moving along at once, as I like moving back and forth between them. I've been playing with my recent purchase of custom-printed cotton from Spoonflower, and here is one of the experiments. I adore using things that have had a previous life and constructing something new from them, and here is another of those projects. In this case, I am continuing my exploration of shredded paper. I love the look of a big pile of randomly shredded paper! All those bits of color mixed together haphazardly is very exciting.
I have been using them as a resist under a silkscreen, stitching them together, fusing them, and now a combination of cloth, paper, silk strips, and silk yarn. I like where this is going.......
