Playing with a new technique developed in 2012, I experimented with fusing hand painted fabrics and paper to felt, free motion quilting, pencil crayon work before brushing on gel medium. I again embellished with metallic acrylic paints. The piece was sealed with a second coat of gel medium. This mixed media fabric art collage is a very effective process in merging fabric, paint, words and pencil crayon to create visually captivating artworks.
“Walk Slowly” was created as part of a series of 4 art pieces. Since the process is messy and requires numerous steps in creation, it is best to make a number of artworks at one time!
