A few weeks ago, I decided to play with a technique I'd been wanting to mess with for awhile. So I gathered up a bunch of snippets of embellishment threads, yarns, and cords.
(This a little more close up...)
And soon became this after I soaked off the water soluble stabilizer.
And then it sat for awhile.
Last night I dug into my fat quarter stash and turned it into this:
Which is dimensional, by the way. My current modus operandi.
Each layer was done by itself, quilted, and then attached the layer beneath or above.
(Can you see I free-handed some feathers to frame the thread? First time for that too!)
Ahem. Currently no idea what I'll now do with this. It doesn't have an obvious way to hang it (no binding to sew a sleeve into), so I need to do some more thinkin'. And playin'. But even if it never hangs anywhere, it served it's purpose. I experimented, tried a few techniques at once that I've been wanting to try, and I had a ball playing. What have you experimented with lately? Fabric-wise, that is.
