Sorry for not posting for so long! Don't you just hate when life gets in the way of art and blogging!
I have been taking an art journal workshop with Sandra Spagnuolo. I can't find her web site but I am pretty sure she has one. Above is a piece of fabric that I painted and then did a rubbing to get the wings. On the back of the fabric I adhered some painted paper towel. I love the texture that I got with the paper towel. You can see it in the top picture, the right hand side. The pages are complete yet but I think I have a really good start.
