040211 – fabric Day 5

TA-DA!!!!! At this stage I think it is finished. We worked today with the yellow marigold color to add that “POP”. went with a sun which I created a stamp for.

The 5 yards of fabric was created using a variety of techniques and I had a blast creating it with my studio mate Russ Little. He taught me a lot of new things and I am planning on playing more and doing some printmaking projects on my own.

the art

All my artwork is made of paper. It is only created using paper, glue, and patience. The works on this site represent the pieces that I am attempting to create each weekday. These pieces are available to purchase and once an original is sold prints will become available. Other work can be viewed on my main site - www.sagworks.com. Larger works are available to purchase as originals or prints through sagworks.com. I am also available for commissioned pieces.
