Rusty Fabric Art

      Good Morning!  This is a quilted piece of muslin that I stained with scraps of metal.  I placed the metal on the fabric, and saturated it with water and vinegar. Using some discarded bricks I weighed the fabric down and let it sit for 24 hours.  There was enough fabric to do another one as well.

     On this one I cut and pieced it together, and added quite alot of stitching to create some textured affects to the fabric.  Also the angles of the piece added a nice touch to the composition of it. 

    They are both accented with a different fabric for the binding.  The pieces pull the viewer in to get a closer look at the surface of them.  Absolutely yummy colors were accomplished using that old rusty metal, and a splash of vinegar.  

          Hope you Wednesday is a Wonder!!      (*.*)
