Lamination Samples

I've been experimenting with laminating on various ground fabrics: wool, linen, handwoven cotton and commercial cotton. Here are some examples in preparation for several workshops I will be conducting. WAY fun!! Remember - you can click on any blog images to enlarge them for a close up view.

Flotsam - A Contemporary Embroidery

Here's a recent piece I finished. There is, in fact, an underlying layer of laminated paper then some painted WonderUnder. Beyond that I have stitched a variety of cool stuff, added some paint and burned the edges (I seem to be painting with my fingers lately; isn't that something we did in kindergarten???). It is mounted on painted canvas. Any ideas for a title?
