Poll/encuesta: only textiles or some paper mixed media collages allowed?
The question of Dianne opened the door for some considerations...
The swap of Dot was made mainly of small collages, like the ones used for ths ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) in paper and mixed media. Because of that the result was a very interesting one.
We want our work to be a textile one, but:
should we allow collages made on a background of cardstock, wallpaper, etc?
I would like this to add more interest and contrast while most of the pieces are made out of textile materials.
There is also a way of achieving this look using only textiles. I use Pelmet (Craft) Vilene or fabric with some interfacing (vellón?) underneath to make the piece more sturdy.
What do you think about this? Please answer in the blog!
