Vintage Textiles

Introducing fabric into Mixed Media Art is a another great way to add a new texture. Vintage Textiles are readily available with traditional designs. The idea of a hand stitch item among paint and other mediums is interesting. This opportunity to gather and present a variety of items in one piece of art is what Mixed Media is all about. Grab some Vintage Textiles, be bold and brave; cut up, paint or layer more items on the art.
