arty stuff

I painted the background to this piece a while ago and couldn't decide what to make of it (well, I am Pisces) and I had some small squares of muslin that I had dyed for a wall hanging so I stitched them to the background but felt it was too bland. So, old favourite Bondaweb came to the rescue. I painted a 30cm.piece in rainbow stripes and when it was dry, ripped it into rough pieces and ironed them on top.

The background had already been backed with wadding but I decided to staple the finished piece to a canvas as I didn't fancy quilting over the Bondaweb.

It makes a bright splash on a dull day.

I have begun a bigger version
