What I want to share today is one of the wonderful classes that I took at CREATE the mixed media art retreat I attended in Chicago at the end of August. Magical Metal Altars was taught by Judy Perez Coates. We painted on fabric and then cut and embossed aluminum sheets to make the "altar" shape. Then we sewed....yes, with a sewing machine.....the metal to fabric.
While my painting leaves me wondering if I should return to kindergarten art class, I found the metal work really exciting.
I am eager to try other projects that will incorporate metal and fabric together. I hope all of you are having a wonderful holiday.
