Started out fooling around with all black compositions and texture. For the first time ever I bonded a piece of silk to cotton. While I liked the result, I hated using anything but thread. Maybe I am a purist but I did not like the look, feel, or idea of using adhesives. What I did enjoy was seeing how texture can really help create more depth when you are using a dark palette. This is most definitely a path to explore- using different textures but contrasting that with crisp lines.
My experimental pile is getting bigger and bigger. And I continue to learn. Tomorrow I look at edges and texture.
