I've been experimenting with digital collage, combining photographs and line art. What a fun challenge it is to find images that compliment each other and then add color with paint and thread! Of course they are all on rust-dyed fabric.

This piece is a door prize to be given away at the Wisconsin Quilters Inc. this weekend. Can' t wait to meet them and spend a fabulous Superbowl Sunday introducing them to Altered Photo Artistry.

The colors in this piece are painted on with Earth Safe Finishes Colorant and Fabric Magic as a binder. I'm not really a painter (at all), but I'm mesmerized by the way the colors flow and blend. Stitching on top to outline and define the image is great fun.

This is the beginning of a series that will debut at the Universalist Unitarian Church in Fort Wayne, Indiana in April.

It's very pretty. Nice contrast between the architectural element and the flower.
