Reminiscence... Skinny dipping

Unveiled..... the latest Challenge... thank you Jan.. good memories.

Skinny dipping
As a young teenager, what fun we had, under the full moonlit skies to peel off our clothes and go for a 'midnight swim'... midnight? .. only in the state of darkness for us, not the time.

I used a lot of techniques in this.. first it is paper fabric... fabric paper? [I never know which]... then I
'foiled around'..used the inks, stitches, embellishments and added bling to the wet body climbing out from the water. The 'fabric' includes many layers and inclusions.
I am fond of the 'Forte' teas, so used the leaves in a discretionery way... hmmm... reminiscent? An angelina heart has been well placed and Lutradur was used to create the lace on the right hand edge, adding to the feminity...

This piece now hangs in my personal bathroom, above the soaker tub... candles and all...
