Waiting for the paint to dry

Today's project is to focus on my mixed media art work...for which I  have collected ideas and fabrics for some time.  Now to begin!

 This is about 16 X 11 inches and has acrylic felt behind it, for support, instead of batting. The beige background is antique linen toweling and I am stitching down some antique lace for more texture on the background.  The pomegranates I carved and printed with acrylic paint.   There are small scraps of dupioni silk and tortoise shell flower buttons too......once it dries and I return from this morning's errands, I will start working on the foreground pomegranates and add more beading and  embellishments.

This is looking great already - can't wait to see whatever cleverness you come up with.
