Rust is like a Cat

Update: Rusting fabric with pre-conceived designs does not work. Rust does its own thing..it runs, it moves, it takes, it doesn't take...it is like trying to work with a cat...it runs you and not the other way around. The rust, like the cat is in charge. My "controling rust" idea in previous post sounded good but it was a no go...but I did get another wonderful batch of rusty fabrics for my woman piece. Here are some close ups of my "controlled" rusting attempts:

LOL, you know you can't control art, it doesn't what it want. We're never in control. We just sometimes think we are.

There's a little blog award waiting for you over on Shrinking Pamelalala. Stop by to collect when you fell like it.
