It looks like I'm going to be staying with these graffiti backgrounds for a while. I really like the interplay of their busyness with whatever goes on top of them, especially with sheers so you can peek through the layers. I keep getting new ideas for variations and am starting to think about how this might work in a large piece.
This first "What If?" was "What if I layer sheers on top of each other to get more gradations of color?" I also asked, What if I include burned out velvets (I think that's what they are called) to have the contrast of their fuzzy and sheer parts.
In this one I asked, "What if I layer and wash various fabrics, like I did in the white-on-white textural piece earlier, but this time use lots of color?" I like the unpredictable quality of these. Some pieces almost disappear in the wash and others become more prominent.
