My favorite ways to embellish my Fiber art.
There are so many ways to embellish your textile pieces. Sometimes, after what I think is a finished piece, I’ll stand back and look at it. I can see that there is something missing, that little oomph just is not there. That’s when I turn to my little bag of embellishment tricks, and for me, more is better. Let me show you some of my favorites.
If you’ve had a chance to read the ABOUT ME tab you know that my sweetie is an amateur astronomer. We go to several Star Parties a year all over the country, where I get a lot of my inspiration. Most of the astronomers are men, very nice but a tad on the geeky side. 🙂 What is wonderful about them is their willingness to share their knowledge to inspire folks to be interested in the stars. Even more than that, they are so proud to show off their astro photos. For copyright reasons, I have used the Hubble Telescope photos for my personal inspiration rather than theirs to embellish my artwork.
To get the effect of a shimmering galaxy or nebula, I embellish with Angelina fibers which are polyester based.
