Mixed media wall hangings by textile artist Sharon McCartney (these images no longer on her website)

thread and scrap art! Lay "leavings" onto a piece of fabric, (thick enough but not to thick to sew over), place water-soluble fabric over top, and sew everywhere, wildly! Run water on disolvable fabric, let dry, then cut out shapes, and add hilighting stitching (leaf veins, outlines, etc.) love it - so quaint and different!
