Welcome to my colorful world of  Fabric Decollage!

I'm Debbie Jones, from Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Fabric Decollage is an original technique that's a cross between collage and decoupage, created by bonding many fabrics together in layers. Almost every kind of fabric can be found in these decollages, including commercially available and hand-painted pieces, ranging from cottons and silks to ultrasuede and metallics.   Sometimes I start with a single piece of fabric that inspires me and then build a collage around it. More often, I start with a color scheme in mind and then choose various fabrics, cutting them in a free-form manner and building the layers as I go, envisioning landscapes or underwater seascapes or even perhaps a "dreamscape".  

Each decollage is one-of-a-kind. Once the fabrics are glued in layers, the finished artwork is then placed in a large press that applies high pressure and heat to flatten and bond it to a sturdy, acid-free surface. The result is two-dimensional artwork that resembles a painting -- a "fabric painting"!  Most of them are matted and framed, although they can be quilted rather than being mounted and framed. This is a unique way of working with fabric that I've developed over the past twenty years, after injuries from an auto accident left me unable to machine quilt for a long time.

Please take a look around to see examples of this distinctive art form and let me know if you're interested in purchasing my work or commissioning me for a custom design. Your comments would be most welcome.

Thanks for stopping by my website -- I hope you enjoy your visit!

Ice Dyeing, Quilting & Silk Fusion

These are the things I've been busy with recently. I hope you'll check out my  Silk Fusion & Silk Fusion Vessel pages by clicking here, where you'll see 5 different pieces of Silk Fusion fabric and the different ways I've used them in decollages and quilts, plus close-up photos. There are also two pages highlighting these beautiful vessels.

I've also discovered a few new ways to tie and bind fabric, then apply liquid dyes and ice cubes to make spectacular starbursts, mandalas and winding patterns. 

Also, there's an art quilt I've been working on (off and on) for about 12 years. Finally finished it! Click here to see a photo of "Windows of Heaven" and close-ups.

Check out my latest
Silk Fusion Vessel!

Click here to see more Silk Fusion Vessels. 

This vessel in shades of dark teal 
was made with eight silk hankies, 
which are the very thin, gossamer layers 
of silk that come from a cocoon. 
They actually look like hankies.
At night, the multi-colored fairy lights 
make the vessel appear to be many different colors!
Here are eight new 
Holographic Metallic Fabrics!

So new, they aren't listed on the Store Page yet, 
but I just had to share them with you right away.

The colors are, from left to right,
aqua, gold, pink, green, silver, red, blue and purple.

Slightly sheer, these lightweight fabrics are
perfect for all kinds of projects!

Wondering what to do with these luscious fabrics?

Here's my Tip Sheet with instructions for 
how to iron these cool fabrics, 
how to use them with fusible web, and 
how to stabilize them so they can be sewn & quilted. 

If you want to purchase some now, 
they're $2.50 each for a 9"x22" roll. 
Just email me what you want and your zip code 
(to calculate shipping), 
and I'll send you a Paypal invoice.
