By accident........Studio Friday


This is a corner of a piece I did for one of my daughters as a gift. I used a photo of a painting she did many years ago, printed it on fabric, and began stitching, adding beads, glitter and paper. The "accident" occurred when I glued pieces of marbled paper to the fabric then decided I hated the way it looked. I ripped the paper away, leaving just portions of it on the fabric (the rust-colored areas). I loved how it looked, so began gluing, drying and ripping up.

Those "accidents" stretch and challenge my creativity!
