Some of my very first-every collages...made from fabric

Recently the topic on my favorite etsy mixed media thread turned to fabric and how much we all love it…which got me thinking about some of the very first collages that I made.

Several years ago I went to an art market around Christmas time and saw the most amazing fabric art. I bought a small piece that now hangs in my daughter’s room, but left completely inspired.

I seem to get a bit obsessed with something and then all of a sudden I move on to something else. This period of producing fabric collages lasted about six months…after that it was acrylic painting (I think)…I can hardly keep it all straight. All I can do is just go with the flow and have a good time.

I still love the beautiful colors and textures of fabric. Who knows…maybe I’ll revisit it again someday.

All of our experiments shape what we do today--that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

I love love love the turtle piece! They all are beautiful :)
