Fabric in Art

The Documented Life Project had a Fabric prompt in May.  This is my take on that.  

This piece of fabric is from a nightgown I bought years ago.  It had all these wild images all over it. I'm sure I looked like a hippy from the 70s wearing it but it was comfortable so I went with it.  I love how the background of the fabric looks like a cloudy sky.  

This was a very quick page. I put the fabric on sticky back paper and then glued it with gel medium to the page. I embossed the birds on paper using Versa Mark Ink and black embossing powder.  I cut the little birds out and used a glue stick to glue them.  The words are stamped on the fabric and cut out as well.  

The birds and words are both Rubber Dance Stamps.
