I started Pesce Pesce (aka Fishy Fishy) by cutting interesting shapes from fabrics and glueing them to a muslin base. I used Aleene's Tacky Glue. I chose cotton batiks for the interesting colors and cut the fins from other fabrics that looked like branches and leaves.
Some synthetic commercial fabrics were added for little extra glitz.
To add a little more depth to Pesce I created a small fabric collage using fabrics texturized using Paintstiks and rubbing plates. I added a few bubbles and underwater plants before free-motion quilting the entire project.
