Following the book..kinda..

Hello there peeps as promised today i am posting the more" follow the book" piece i made.
(To catch up bout what i am talking please read previous post.)
It was not easy to get the pictures to show the texture well.
The gold paint reflects the light bit to much to give all of the pieces secrets away.."sigh"
The polymer clay pieces where all cut on the edges with fun cut craft scissors. that was before baking them of
here is the whole piece, bit wrinkled still. I am hoping to smooth it a bit from the back with a small iron.
Thinking about stretching it on a frame, it for sure is strong enough for it.
This piece was made with paints only, the pieces in the previous post i used inks on.
Well that's it for today, hope you all have a wonderful day.

Hi there folks, i hope this post finds you all well.
I hope to be more regular on my post in the coming time. Think i got all the doctor appointments and hospital stuff behind me now for a while. On my way to getting to feel much better and so much less tired. Ahh enough of that on with the
On my search to find and learn more mixed media and fiber art techniques i found Angie Huges book "STITCH,CLOTH,PAPER & PAINT". Her projects she takes you thru in her book and the techniques used are just awesomely fun to learn and to do and ones learned it takes you to that "what if?" stage. I wanted to share some "what if's" with you in here and see what you think. Its all bout achieving more or different texture. Unfortunately like most of my pictures in the blog, somehow the colors fade more then i want them to when i post. But i hope you will bare with me.In her book, Angie's projects are rich colorful and almost sparkly. I wanted a more faded result without loosing the texture.
The intention was to made the cloth look worn and old. I think i got pretty close results?! What you think?
Now i am working on ideas on how to use these pieces ( that does not mean any suggestions will be turned away :) )
I am waiting for one more project to dry, this one is more of the "following the book" kind.
When it is dry i will post it in the next post, to give you a comparison. I do recommend if your interests are in same direction as mine and you have not checked this book out yet,to go find it and have a closer look. At the same time as i am posting this i am thinking of how i can integrate this kind of cloth with my fabric dolls. to many ideas coming up at am sure most of you know that feeling.
Will keep you posted what i come up with.
Take care peeps, till soon.
