Serenity: Cloth, Paper, Metal and Paint. This 10 X 14, Mixed Media piece is another experiment in abstract design. The background is from pieced fabric, that has been free motion quilted and then painted with acrylic. The tree is made from artist metal, that was mounted onto black felt; and then embossed with embossing tool. The embossed design is then stitched with thread. All other elements are made by using fabric, hand dyed papers and glue, on brown paper. Sections are cut out and glued to background, using fabric glue. The textural feel of this work is almost impossible to capture in a photograph. I plan to work on this process more, as time goes by. More experimentation is required.
