This is a piece that I did with some of my vintage, heirloom draperies that I have in my stash. I call it, "Love and Luck". I love to use my painted, molded and sewn images that I cut out of magazines. I don't just take an image from a magazine and go over it with paint. Sometimes I make my own image irregardless
of what the image is in the magazine. I just like the recycled quality of using several layers of magazine sewn together. Sometimes I heavily alter an existing image in the magazine to suit my purposes. Either way, the combination of paper and fabric has such an allure I think together. Don't you? Especially when it is made with textural elements like molding paste or garnet gel. Love that stuff!
