Main focus of January completed…
I started, as I always do, by collaging fabrics. the fabrics that show here are both vintage kimono silks. I took an antique brooch that I have had for a while and took it apart. I thought it was interesting how the warm colored faux pearls were paired with silver – it seemed kind of unusual. I was happy to combine that with a variety of winter blues. This is definitely the mood of a Juneau Winter.
It’s too large to be worn, so my next decision needs to be how to finish it. I am trying to decide between keeping it simple and just adding the edging layer and then using it as a book cover….or whether to get a small canvas and actually make it a wall piece. What is shown is 2.5 inches in diameter , it will be about 3inches across when the it’s ready for its fate.
Or, maybe as I’m sleeping on it and pondering over the next couple of days, Ill think of another idea.
