In the beginning

Here it is, the start of trying to make fabric do what paper does. I tried my hand at transferring pictures using a pre-prepared fabric that went though the printer. I didn't know anything about gel medium and the like, just a question of trial and error. I think it was around this time I found Mixed Media and packed up all my sewing stuff. I like this kind of art where I can be ever so slightly untidy, am free to pile stuff on, make a mess and generally enjoy myself!
