Mixing Media

Here's the photo printed on fabric I was working on. I'm not afraid to mix all my media. At this point we've got an altered photo, printed, painted with textile paints, topped with silk organza, felted with wool and silk, thread sketched and painted again with acrylics and colored pencils. More to come. I'm thinking some hand embroidery would be just the thing.

  3. Yep--it's the one of my daughter I started painting...you can see it's gone in a more abstract direction. The nice thing about printing on fabric and painting is that you still have the original and can start over. The backing fabric I bought from Wendy Richardson--graffiti style print, and I did some painting on it.
