Green Dress Alteration Prep

To alter the green dress, I am going to sew little abstract paintings into the seams. I make these paintings by setting down a layer of clear acrylic medium on glass, placing little dry bits of paint (collected habitually from my palette scrapings), then adding another layer of clear medium, so that the arrangements of color dry into a plastic-y sheet, which can be peeled off of the glass, creating a painting purely of paint.

I've cut little widgets out of this larger fruit-roll-up of a painting to hide in the dress.
