Sometimes, you have to go backwards to go forwards. I was looking at this piece, which I made several years ago, paint and charcoal on hand dyed cloth, with stitch. The pink stuff hanging down is silk organza. Looking at it, I wondered if perhaps I would have added something by using Lutradur instead of silk. In this case, I don't think I would have done...but I wouldn't know, if I hadn't considered it. It's often worth looking to what you have done before, to see if the techniques you know now would allow you to take that work forward...going backwards, to go forwards.
