Experimenting again....

Found that I was running low on my
experimental ( that's what I call them)
papers for bead making. So got busy with
the paints and the Tyvek. Now they just need
cutting, rolling and firing.
These are a different experiment.
I carefully attached napkins to
a heavy canvas fabric. It is a
fragile process.
They will be used in a collage art quilt
I am dreaming up.
Just thought you'd like to see what the
"mad artist" has been up too...!

I love using napkins, but you are correct -- very fragile. Can't wait to see what the *mad* artist is up too!
