2008 Weekly Mixed Media Project

Above is the front side of my 38th Weekly Mixed Media piece this year. Below is the back side, which is pretty plain.

This week, I decided to use some netting-like fabrics I had in my studio, because I enjoyed using them in my felting in past weeks. I don't know what these fabrics are called. I got the thicker black one in New York City, a few years back, when I was fabric shopping. The thin black, and white, knitted netting, is from fabric shopping in Budapest Hungary in the fall of 2006. I am pretty sure it's made out of linen, but not positive, since there was a language barrier. What ever it is made of, it feels like linen to me, and I love the knitting.

This piece ended up on the large size, as I was finishing the felting. I have some really good scraps after cutting it down to 6" x 6", that I can use in future weeks.

You can see my 2008 weekly mixed media work (so far) on my website, and read about it here on my blog.
