The Melange Team of wonderful mixed media artists have a challenge today - use fabric in mixed media art. Glenda Bailey of twocooltexans on Etsy blessed us with this challenge, and encouraged us to add lace, threads, and all kinds of fabric to our art.
Here is my Melange Fabric Challenge piece: Miss Alice
Miss Alice is a 6" x 6" gallery wrapped canvas with 1/2" sides. Green and white acrylic is sponged on the front and all sides. The first foundation fabric is printed with flowers. The tan fabric on the next layer is cotton lace. The next layer is pink hand-dyed paper towel. The layer under the photo is an embroidered doily. Miss Alice is a print from a vintage photo. Above her is a paper print of a vintage letter. Below her is pink netting draped into a silk flower with hand-dyed paper leaves and a faux pearl center. I love the look on Miss Alice's face, don't you?
