I then found this next piece of fabric which I monoprinted and thought the colors would work well together.
In looking through my stash, I came upon this rice bag I purchased while on a trip to Japan many years ago. This is the original bag which I Indigo dyed some years back. I love the "mending" stitches (on right). The bags are traditionally beige colored and used in the rice fields for collecting rice.
The 2 pieces worked well together.
I love "faces" so when I came upon this in my stash, I thought .....hmmmmm..... perhaps it will work. The face is a drawing my son did and is printed on silk organza - might make a nice overlay
on this fabric with writing screened on top
I like layering and this might work but I think it needs a little toning down.
Perfect for overlays and toning things down.
So here's the combination of fabrics so far.
I found this other sheer printed with a "half" of a tree, just begging to be used.
I thought it might work as an overlay on the original photo of trees (far left). I like it - it's subtle.
