|Taffeta, mixed media journal page|
Since this is an experiment it's headed for the art journal, but I can see possible a whole artist's book full of irreverence and just maybe a little piquancy.
My aim, my technique: play off a found image (old or new, such as from a magazine, catalog, etc.) with fabric scraps, stitching (machine or hand, usually both), buttons and/or beads, and layered onto a painted background (book pages being a personal fave).
