Grunge Fabrics

I spent some time in the studio this morning just playing with a variety of techniques: Geli printing, thermofax and stamping. I am working on making some cool palette fabric to use in my quilt "Winter" It is a long time since I have done this and most pieces have had at lease 3 techniques applied to them. I started off just using cool hues but then decided to introduce some warmer ones to break up the repetition. Most probably many of these will be cut up and rearranged before being added to the quilt surface. This quilt will be largely abstracted with a feeling of cold and decay but there will be one large panel of a tree that will be a bare tree image reaching to the sky. I showed part of that image a few days back.
