Enjoy the pics...some of them offer auditions of fibers and other fabrics that will be added to the final piece...oh and the 3rd flower will have longer petals...just ran out of steam...
the petals, stems and leaves are all made out of my own hand dyed silk top that was made into silk paper via the silk fusion process. Pretty cool...I can't wait to see how it evolves once thread art get's added on top!!!
the cone part is a commercially dyed batik as is the background fabric...it was torn into 4 segments and then twisted for a pin wheel effect...that's the feeling anyway...i go where the wind takes me...but I never seem to leave the spot where I stand. It's a surreal experience having cancer...it's still hasn't totally sunk in yet.
just starting to open up...kinda like Sara...being 2 can be such an amazing time in a child's life...everything is an adventure!oh yea...it's going to get embellished...how much is too much? More is more...right?
to put the chennille over or under for depth...hmmmm...decisions, decisions...I'm finally the one that get's to make all the decisions on this project...unlike my life...sigh.
