The Three Muses asked us to make art with the theme “Music, Music, Music” this week and I have chosen to use the Japanese lady from Home Impressions again to create this fabric/paper collage with scraps from my desk. The base is a piece of handmade white paper, onto which I have stitched various types of fabric, fabric flowers ands papers – vellum at the bottom and sheet music behind Madame B.
The little image is from Ten Two Studios (Little Yellow Things), as is the oriental text page on which Madame B is stamped. When I start these mixed collages, I never really know what they are going to look like. You’ll see that the blue netting winds over and under paper and fabric, in a zig-zag fashion, and there’s a lot of blue and white, (reminiscent of the Willow Pattern pottery), in the whole piece. That happened, like the silky bamboo fabric, by accident – it was simply the first scrap to hand when I sat at the machine!!
Here’s to happy accidents and just going with the flow… =D
