Reader Challenge

Back in August 2013, I saw this reader’s challenge in Cloth Paper Scissors magazine and decided to give it a whirl. The challenge was to use our favorite techniques to create a six inch mixed media square with some kind of stitching.

I used one of my linocut prints on fabric as the starting point, then I accented the print  with acrylic ink and oil pastel.  I didn’t spend too much effort on it, and basically just considered it a little experiment where I give equal weight to the positive and negative space in a composition.  I liked the result and decided to submit it to the magazine.  The first step was to submit a .jpg of the piece. Later, I heard back from them and sent it in to be photographed, still not knowing if it would actually be included in the magazine.  Today I was pleased to see that it was included in the January/February 2014 issue of Cloth Paper Scissors!!!
