Once I had all my paint down I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to do next with my slow art project.

I started thinking about fabric scraps or more paper to give it a collage look. Add fabric on top of the paint on your canvas

I went through my fabric drawer, where all the little random bits end up, and found a couple of pieces I liked. The yellow one was already cut in a perfect pennant shape (left over from my mini fairy garden bunting), and the fabric with the squares I trimmed down to fit. slow art fabric scraps canvas

I used fabric Mod Podge to stick them down, but I’m sure for a project like this regular glue or Mod Podge would work as well. pennant fabric glued down

As with regular Mod Podge, to use fabric Mod Podge you apply some to the back of the fabric and stick it where you want, let it dry for a couple of hours and then apply more on top to seal.

It’s an easy — and slow! — process that brings some color and texture to your canvas. fabric scraps on canvas

I like the feeling of not really knowing what I’m doing, adding things and seeing what happens.

I hope even if you’re not playing along right now that this is something you will try at some point. It’s really interesting to be doing it and yet not feeling completely in control of what’s going on.

It’s definitely different from my usual creating experience, where I know going in more or less what I’m trying to do and have a picture of how it’s going to turn out in my head. There is no picture here, and I think that’s great. I think you’ll enjoy it, too.
