Playing With Texture

I'm still playing with the music score fabric that was recently gifted to me. I am finding the wrong side of the fabric is as useful as the right side. The print shows through just enough to create some texture that is not overpowering. Add a few simple embroidered stars and some acrylic paint in the background and you're done.

I have to confess this started out all wrong. I was trying to do something else and it wasn't working and I was ready to toss it. But I hate to give up and thought I'd try and salvage it. I'm glad I did because I'm very pleased with the final result.

(Available for trade for another fabric ATC only).

Yes, this one is fantastic! Trying to salvage something can make you extra creative.

I like it alot - there is a lot of texture and dimension here with the face being part of the cloth, instead of appliqued on the background.
