Mixed media with paper and fabric

I joined a group: http://haikuart.blogspot.com/ where the members receive a "prompt" word every month from which we have to compose a haiku poem and represent it in a way of our choosing, using any art medium.

The january word is BEGINNING. I have never composed a poem before....this is my first haiku:

You pave a new path
jump, bounce and hop up and down
come shine a new day

techniques: the background fabric is a mono print. The top layer is a polyester fabric that has been laminated with old newspaper clippings with the help of a thermofax screen; this piece was then laminated with silver leaf and silk screened with fabric paint (jumping people). The "haiku" poem has been printed directly to a leftover piece of the background fabric. detail
