Collage Tutorial 5. Working with Textiles.

Another abstract composition created with fabrics. I pretty much gravitate more towards abstraction ideas in my work, rather than representation , as this is how I see the world…

For this piece I used a canvas board with a layer of aged cotton canvas glued on top. Next a layer of hand-dyed, aged scrim torn and tattered. Another piece of canvas and vintage tablecloth scrap. I then attached a vintage button with old string and kept going over the piece, sewing in between in areas, finishing with some mark-making using a textile pen.
