Mounting Small Quilts on Stretched Canvas
In my continued journey to find ways to combine fabrics with paint and collage, I've begun to paint stretched canvas to use as a background frame on which to attach a smaller art quilt or mixed-media collage. Here is my first such project. The photo on the left shows the finished quilted mixed-media collage, unmounted. 10" x 14". The photo on the right shows it mounted on an 18" x 24" canvas that I painted with acrylics. I used card board, cheese cloth, and a dryer sheet, along with some crackle paste and glass bead gel, to extend the textural interest out from the quilt. Available for $625.00.
