I've been playing around with this fun little piece that features a bird on a limb and really fun and colorful commercial fabrics. It's a bit of a departure from my other work, but it's using one of my favorite techniques, reverse applique. It involves cutting away underlying bits of fabric from the top pieces. This particular piece incorporates eight different fabrics, which I've pictured here, so you can get an idea of all that's going into it. I'll post more as I progress along on this one. This is a fun piece that I'm enjoying working on, it's sort of been an "on again, off again" piece for me, and I'm ready to finish it soon. The word "free" has come to my mind over and over in working with this piece, so I'm ready to see where it goes.
On my design wall right now.
