Quick Project!

After a recent visit to my blogging art friend Michelle's wonderful blog, I decided to jump in on the end of a project organized by the International Fiber Collaborative.
The deadline for participation for theproject is this Saturday, March 15 so I knew that I had to come up with something quick easy and already half finished- not always easy for me!!! First of all I would have to find what I needed - so that meant that it had to be close tot he top of my piles......... (more on the studio cleanup later!) The project entails collecting leaves created using fibers of all sorts, made to withstand the elements (this would be an outside installation). The whole project is explained at the link above- click on the Tree Project icon once you get to the site.
I took some of my gelatin printed fabric that I had overstamped with metallic purple and turquoise and stitched it between a plastic page protector in a simple leaf shape. I sewed a mid rib space so I could insert a wire and created a little loop at the stem end of the leave to hold the wire in place. All done. In the Mail!!!!!

Your leaves are lovely, away to check out this project now!

How creative and lovely!!! The difference between you and me: when I read that the leaves needed to be received by March 15th, I said to myself, "not enough time", while you said to yourself, "get busy and get them in the mail!" LOL
I hope I'm not too old to learn something from you!

Awesome! I'm so glad you jumped in and participated. Maybe our leave will hang out together!!
