Funky birds in reverse applique

One day I painted some muslin with Micaceous Iron Oxide by Golden and gathered a print and some other handpainted cloth and began to sew the pieces together randomly by machine. I simply went where the machine needle was pointing and sewed for about 20-30 minutes, I would say. Then I took scissors and began to (again) randomly cut away at the layers of fabric I had sewn together. What began to emerge was one pretty obvious funky bird, and a few others if you are able to rotate the circle around and stare for a minute or so. After the first cutting session, I added more machine sewing and cut again. Ultimately, I sewed whatever needed it and then appliqued the silver cut circle to the top of the piece and called it finished. I could also title this Bird Mandala.
