ink and spunbond
i made this fiber art piece by painting spunbond with my favorite acrylic inks. i painted strips of different colors in criss-cross layers with a little water and a wide brush to create abstract window panes.
spunbond is a non-woven fabric that is commonly used for coveralls, surgical masks, and lots of other disposable or filtration products. it's not easy to find just in sheets or on bolts, but a small sheet comes inside this fiber art kit, or you could deconstruct something made from it.

i was beyond thrilled to learn that my piece has been featured in five different autumn-themed etsy treasuries. there's so much beautiful handmade inspiration to see here—have a look (and a listen)!
