second fabric fat book

This second book is my favorite even if it does have an element on it that isn't fabric. The colors just speak to me more.

For this second book I once again used the muslin, but dyed the body with acrylic paint and reinkers. While the fabric was still wet I sprinkled coffee on the material to give it a mottled appearance. The small square was coffee dyed and when dry I applied gesso then a transparency image of a butterfly. Little french knots were used to attach the words "Forest Walk".
