My "pages"are put together with paper and fabric, buttons, beads, fabric transfers and hand painted surfaces. For now I am calling them Fabric collage Pages, I guess.
I created this one for my dear friend, Rebecca Bunting. She is the namesake of my daughter and Becca's godmother as well. I really think of her as my sister. She is an amazing jewelry artist of amazing skill and creativity, she also loves to garden and is in the process of writing a cookbook and helping to put her second son through college. She is an amazing person and a dear, dear friend!
The fabrics that I used on this page are Dupioni silk(purple) ,rayon(Aqua with roses) vintage lace, and linen (bright green). the doilley is a very old paper one that I found in an antique mall. The quote reads, " Those who spread sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves."
This is the back of the page which is a piece of 140 lb watercolor paper that I painted and stamped. I will be creating a book cover, probably altering the shell of an old book to hold the pages. I intend to make Rebecca a series of pages, with this being the start.
For the time being I created a small easel for her to display this piece if she desires.
The feet are oversized cloths pins that I altered with some of my paint scaped, collaged paper.
I hope that Rebecca enjoys this piece as much as I enjoyed creating it for her!
