I am really enjoying this fabric art/collage thingie, and have already started on another. Here, I dyed some cheesecloth with a paint mixture I made...I just love that texture. I layered that over a piece of coffee stained muslin that I stamped with one of my script stamps. I stamped the "heart's desire" on muslin and sewed that to the heart I cut out of muslin. I sewed the heart onto a beautiful piece of rose colored fabric with a great dot pattern on it, that I received in my winning package from Lorraine Stobie from the OWOH giveaway. If your looking for great fabric swatches, this lady makes the most beautiful ones...WOW . Added some lace that I coffee stained also to the bottom, and some vintage buttons from my stash....all sewn on a piece of natural batting. The bow thing at the bottom was kind of an accident. I had torn some strips of the muslin to adjust the size earlier, and they were laying on the table. It was just a moment of looking at them , picked them up and tied a knot, then I distressed that with some rose distress ink, and stamped some text on there also. I think that is it, although I know it didn't go in that order!
I am not sure if I should put eyelets in it to hang, or just leave it be....any thoughts? I am not sure what to even do with this, I just know that I like it.
Thanks for stopping by, and I would love to know your opinion here.
