"Revealing First Days"


12"x12"x2" wood panel, hand and machine stitching, hand stamping, turquoise beads, rust and flour resist, muslin,loose weaved painted cloth.
This is the first of  two mosaic images (maybe three)that I am creating using the fabrics from the previous post. I have arranged, rearranged,
cut, stitched, glued and spent days dancing around until this final result. For me it is "my find" of a mosaic image. It could be a floor fragment, a wall portion but it is what seems like a final piece. I used the wood panels because I have had them hanging around for too long.
I'm not an Internet gamer but I've been reading "Reality is Broken" by Jane McGonigal and intrigued by what might be a new experience in my virtual/reality life or how I might fit into some interesting new directions.

    1. Thank you so much ... I was concerned about gluing it all down but it seems to be holding.

  3. I confess to being a rust lover and the combo with turquoise is perfect. I think mounting on the wood panel really enhances this piece. I always marvel at your exploration of different techniques. What fun!

    1. Carole Leslie, Thank you for stopping by ... I also like the wood panel as a change. Yes, I do have fun with these techniques ... maybe its the unknown factor, the unexpected results!
