Tattered Time

Today I have a new project for Art Anthology's design team using textiles. Utilizing an embroidery hoop to hold my muslin was the perfect backdrop for my mixed media project. My inspiration for this piece came from our spectacular mood board this month.

I sewed pieces of the muslin together to form my canvas and prepped with clear gesso. Using AA's coffee stain stencil and AA's paints started designing my backdrop. 
The photograph was altered by adding mulberry flowers, some which I customized the colors using AA's Coloration Sprays, with pearls and tulle ruffle for the dress also altered with Coloration sprays. 
My timepiece was altered mixed craft sand with different shades of AA's paints for a nice patina'd effect.  
Hope this has inspired you to dust off your sewing machine and grab some textiles for your next project. Have a wonderful month. For your pleasure I have also included a snapguide tutorial below. Enjoy !
