Laying out the top elements.

A pile of inspiration.

Finally I am done with the base layers. Now the fun starts! Here are some of the pieces I have selected to maybe go on these paintings.

I have kimono silks, raw silks, hand-dyed silks, sari silks, cotton threads, gauzes, prefelted wool pieces, yarns and netting.  

Here are the paintings so far. I am getting some tasty details already. You can see the placement of the resist pieces. I decided to go with a mix of red and gold materials for the resists. They will contrast nicely with the blues and purples.

The three paintings. I'm not tall enough even on a chair to avoid this wacked-out perspective.

I will keep adding/layering elements until the paintings are ready for felting. During the wet felting stage these elements will combine with the wool and form a fabric. This will be the base for needle felting and mark making.
