New "Obsession"























Like I really need a new obsession.... :o)  I just discovered Collage Obsession, where folks show their collages each week.  This week's theme is mermaids.  Above is an art quilt I made several years ago.  The mermaid fabrics, hair, and beads were all added to the background. 























I've been wanting to get into digital collage.  While my mermaid is neither new, nor digital, I decided to use it as my motivation to join Collage Obsession.























Looking at these details makes me think I should get back into fiber art and/or bead work again.  Here's a link to my website, Uncommon Cloth, if you want to view my fiber art.  I made art quilts for 12 years, but, other than some small ones for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative, I haven't made any quilts since 2007.

I'm so glad you discovered Collage Obsession, Jean! Your fiber art mermaid is just spectacular. Your collage for these challenges doesn't have to be digital, so join us again any time!
