And 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.
And the 2 pieces worked well together.
And 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.
To this fabric with writing screened on top...
along with trees....
I like layering....can you tell?...Well, it might work but I think it needs a little toning down.
So more layering and a good solution...go to a home improvement store...Yes, you heard that correctly!
For some screening!
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.
So I thought it might work as an overlay on the original photo of trees (far left). I like it...it's subtle.
