My creative endeavors this past summer involved trying to combine fabric art with my usual collage materials. I was inspired by the work exhibited in Stampington's "Sew" magazine as well as projects shown in Cloth Paper Scissors. I haven't been entirely happy with the results. It's frustrating because I really enjoy working with the fabrics, the layers, and the different textures. I love the translucency of some of the fabrics and the versatility of cheesecloth (scrim). My comfort zone, however, lies with paper, paint, metal, wood, nails, and glue. I thought the perfect solution would be to combine the two. Something seems to be off though. I'll keep trying, but subsequent attempts will most likely take place next summer. For now, I'll stick with my comfort zone. Besides, I got a Dremel Drill with attachments for Christmas!!
