Tons of beads
I used the Jacquard Marbling Kit and made lots of beautiful fabric pieces. This one had irregular circular shapes that looked like flowers. I used some collaged paper and cut out leaf shapes then used red, orange and yellow orange beads to accentuate the circles and create the flowers. I added the 2 ATCs (Artist Trading Cards)for a focal point. Beading and copper wire integrated them into the background. The swirly lines created by the marbling gave a great linear movement to the piece so I added French knots to play them up. It took hours and hours to do all this beading but it was really relaxing and meditative.
