New Work - The Language of Leaves







My latest!!!! All have been attached to stretcher strips. I pieced the background: some of the fabrics were first stamped or leaf printed. After quilting I added elements: leaf printed book page which was adhered to cheesecloth using watered down glue, different fabric shapes, a quilted leaf print and beads.

These are beautiful. Thanks for sharing. I have some paper cloth started but did not know if I should add a layer of paint or ink or something. Now I see I should! Thanks for sharing!

Love these leaf pieces! Are these backgrounds using the stitch paper or did you just use elements from the stitch paper process? These are gorgeous!

These pieces are primarily created with cotton fabric. I added the fabric paper/papercloth that has the leaf printed on as another item of interest. I like the idea of mixing mediums and will explore that more as I work through "Stitch Alchemy."
