WOYWW #206- Paper or Fabric?

 Hello to all the Wowers out there, ( if you don't what I mean for details, get yourself over to the StampingGround)  I'm back again, still not fully fit but getting there.  This is whats on my desk at the mo, started it on Saturday, going to be the cover for one of my stamp binders.  Th top with the cogs isn't finished, I have painted with a base colour, then added raised bits (ie buttons and crystals I know) and painted with Red Iron Oxide from Decoart. Not sure yet if I will make it look rusty or with a copper patina, watch space......
 These are the two bits apart
 This is the backer I did, in the style of Andy Skinner.  As to fabric, I have always been a traditional Embroiderer, cross stitch, canvas , Stump work, Gold work.  So when I got the opportunity  on the off chance to do a Fabric Collage class, right outside my comfort zone, I thought why not.  So did it yesterday, with a lovely tutor Jae Maries.

 This piece I have called "Industry" going from light to dark, the greys being the factories, yellow pollution, and the bottom RH corner what is produced.  Its all open to interpretation.
This is untitled at the mo, fabric pieces were just dropped onto the backing fabric and I will just stitch into place.  So that it for me this week, mojo starting to return so more next week.  Please all have a good week.
