Peel Away The Layers


I finally got around to using tea bag papers in my artwork. It reminds me of a thin layer of skin. Underneath this layer of "skin", I used a patchwork of brown and tan wool. Putting this small artwork on top of regular fabric didn't seem to work. I decided to dye cotton batting in persimmon. This idea came from my friend, Linda Friedman's blog.  http://lindasartquilts.blogspot.com/2010/07/wildfire-tribute-to-all-wildland.html
