FABric Collages: Curves, Infinity, Whirling Dervish
Right: Whirling Dervish
These are three Fabric Collages that I finished just before the Artist Book Show (which is still up for another week or so). I combined a dozen collages to make up one of my books this year. The "central part" of the image begins with a paper collage that has been printed on white fabric. If you look at "Infinity" you can see the rectangle easily. The other two pieces I have "hidden" the rectangle a bit. Then I compose the rest of the design around that. Once it is all sewn down I embellish the piece with fancy machine stitches and possibly a little bit of beads.
