I have tried a new technique! I'm always trying new things since I get bored doing the same old thing all the time. This technique is one where I was trying to emulate Laura Breitman's. Check out her work on her website http://www.laurabreitman.net/. Her work is incredible! Very detailed. It takes a long time to create a finished work using tiny pieces of fabric. I used a little larger pieces for the background and I like the effect. The rose is made up of very small pieces, about 1/2" in size. The overall size is 20"H X 24"W. The collage was created using gel medium on a white stretched canvas. I used a little fabric paint to add detail to the center and brighten some of the edges. The paint goes a long way in this technique. I am going to try more of this. No sewing involved. I had never used gel medium and didn't know even how to use it. But where there's a will there's a way! I have a beautiful photo of an incredible sunset I have been wanting to recreate in fabric. Not sure if I will do it this way or the regular fused way. We'll see! Check out my website at www.lenorecrawford.com to see more of my techniques on CD. I now have the shredded art quilt technique available on CD-ROM. Also I have a lot of my art available on my Etsy site at http://www.etsy.com/shop/LenoreCrawford where this rose is listed!
