I bought some canvases in a sale at The Works, a cheap and cheerful local art/book shop. A set of three, black, brown and caramel, these have been moved around from shelf to floor and back again in my workroom for around a year, at the same time two old City and Guilds samples that had been ripped off the mountboard they has been displayed on, were also doing a dance around the room, and then a couple of weeks ago I stacked the samples on the canvas to move them out of the way and liked what I saw.
The sample above is acrylic felt, silk dyed with Potassium Permanganate, paper pulp cast over a hair ornament and some free machine stitch. nothing exciting but I always liked this sample and now it has a home on the canvas
The next one was a sample of tied quilting, again nothing earth shattering but it includes one of my first experiments at dying my own fabric.
I think I like both of these because they were early C & G samples when I was just beginning to 'Get It' so for me they have sentimental value, most samples have been thrown or in the last year revamped into postcards.
My problem now is where do I put all these canvases that I have been making recently.
