This is my second fabric collage. It has been a lot of fun to work in another media. I can certainly see how collecting fabrics can be both addicting and fun. Nursing is a passionate profession. It's hard, at times down and dirty, and very rewarding. It's the perfect subject for my series.
I love the blue floral fabric, and it was hard to cover it up. This got about 3/4 done, and then I got stuck.
It took me a few days, with lots of fabrics moved around, details put on and taken off, until it was finished.
I love metal bits, and this brass pin is no exception. I have a little stash of them, as they are getting harder and harder to find. If you have any in your
stash you'd be willing to part with, let me know. Maybe I have something in my stash you'd trade for?
The lace doily came in a little goody bag I bought at the Farm Chicks show this past summer.
I used dress pattern paper for the paper in back of the photo. The bodies at the bottom reminded me of medical books. The edges are inked, not burned.
Don't forget to book your slot soon in my Fall Art Retreat, featuring KC Willis. Then you can come visit me, and give this wonderful medium a try.
