New Cloth Skinny - Bluebird Garden

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is a piece I made after Hollie, (Holliewood Studios) at  http://www.deviantscrap.com/ asked me if I would showcase an example of alternative applications for digital collages.  It demonstrates how digital media can transform into textural work.  And that for me is a personal goal since like many, I prefer original and dimensional work.  I am now experimenting with the use of Caran D'Ache water-soluble crayons on cotton to add another dimension to my cloth collages.   The card next to the cloth skinny  below is a paper print of the original digital collage with handwritten text and crayon added.

Textile  and Surface Design Artists aren't at all new to this concept, but for some, it is a relatively new way of employing all of the new digital kits and images available online.

The dragonfly button is a stunner but then so is the work Trudi! Beautiful colours and textures. I love how the stitching and fibres really enhanced this work.
