I just can't resist a sale on fat quarters! In the past they were used almost immediately for fabric collages for hoop skirt dolls. Now, I'm not sure. I found myself drawn to the batik prints in greens and turquoise, thinking they might blend into some of the hand painted pieces I have done recently. And, I had to have the yellow print. It found friends as soon as I dropped onto the work table. I especially like it with the pink and yellow plaid painted piece.
The idea of placing a polymer clay face onto either a fabric collage or painted background interests me, too. I've experimented with this once in a while. This week I tried it again, using a altered photo frame for the base. The size is about 5.5" square. The piece on the right was made a couple of years ago. This was done on a piece of 1 x 6, textured with paper mache pulp, painted and embellished with tacks and bits of metal.
And, finally, I finished up an abstract acrylic painting that has been in works for a few weeks. I loved doing this! Size is 16" x 20". I can imagine doing large paintings, thick with paint and collage.
All of this gives some ideas to follow up on. Also, I'm beginning to visual a figure (doll) that I would like to make...or maybe this is a theme that could result in several pieces. Maybe they will show up here! And, by next week it will be time to catch up on some quilt squares!
