Leah Piken Kolidas’ Art Every Day Month is here once again! What may seem daunting at first, a call to make art every day, can be looked upon as a gentle invitation to create. The hardest part is getting started, but once you begin things just start flowing.
Right now I have a lot of art projects in process and some almost started. To add to this, last night I decided to create a 6″ square fabric fatbook similar to the fabric books they do at Artfest in Washington state, except those are 4 inch square and participants swap pages with each other. My pages will express ideas that come to mind while working in an improvisational way to come up with something new. Current reading inspiration has been Fabric Art Collage - 40+ Mixed Media Techniques by Rebekah Meier.
This fabric collage page, front and back, was inspired by October beach. Techniques used include free-form applique, raw edges, and a clear contact paper threads and snippets pocket with seashells tucked inside.
