Sewing Patterns In My Art

I had a great time at Neil Elliott's Mixed Media/Abstract Painting Workshop gluing sewing patterns onto three canvases and then painting a wash over them.

All 3 paintings - works in progress....

African Princess

Nice Girl

Mean Girl - I think I'll add more paper to her....

And here are some from 2010...

Here's what some other class members were doing - burning holes in a canvas!!!!

What fun arty things have you been up to?


  1. I like the effect of the paper on the canvas Michelle. They are quite big, aren't they? Looking forward to seeing what you do.

  2. Burning holes in canvas?? Now thats brave! I am way too cheap:) I am loving your sewing tissue, makes cool textures.LOve the dress! Off to find your post about the 30 by 30 by this idea and want to find out more about it. Have you started yet? Hope you are well! Julie

  3. i threw my old drawings away, they bring me some painful memories.
    i dont know if it's fun let alone arty =(
