Close up to See the texture

Yesterday I put up an overview of grunge fabrics but you cannot see the textures that have been created - some of which invite stitch to be added. This piece shows the layering effects of texture. The black has had a mesh imprint then an old potato masher imprint over the top It was printed off a geli plate. A blue thermofax screen has been added and then an ochre stencil. The original piece of fabric was a less than successful piece of botanical printing so at least now it will have a use. While these fabrics are not "pretty" in the traditional sense they can add a lot of depth to a background and often draw the viewer in to examine the layers that hide underneath the top surface.
