Paper and Fabric (and beads?) Oh My!


This is one of the projects that I'm working on in that on-line Joggles.com class with Jane LaFazio. When I first started the project I got a little overwhelmed. Do WHAT? and then huh? - but I plugged along, following the directions (sort of), the whole time thinking "well this is a bunch of crap" and then lo and behold, when I got to the final step I liked it. This is fabric and watercolor paper and a lot of gel medium. I think that I would like to do this again but BIG and in just fabric with a lot of Steam-A-Seam instead of medium. I also think that this needs a few beads? What do you think?

It is really fun Marty - you should think about it if she teaches it again.

I took that class last year and I agree directions were a bit wierd but in the end, I would have much rather done it with fabric only

and yes, beads would add to it

I love this! Reminds me of mandalas and targets and Gee's Bend quilts, and all kinds of lovely circular metaphors. I adore how the stitches become a drawing tool, creating outlines and texture.

Leave this one alone. Make another. And another. And another. Change those ones. But leave this one alone.
