It started with a piece of felted and fulled white wool sweater as a blank canvas. With the addition of some wool roving , some dyed cheese cloth, a few bits of knitted sweaters of various fibers, some more roving, an ocean-scape became apparent.( To enlarge photos, click on each shot.)
Some hand stitches with various green threads, various shades of fine tulle netting,
Some singeing of organza, some beach rocks stitched into vintage linen pockets
More layers of tulle and strands of organza kelp, a few fish of various sizes
This tapestry/textile Collage piece will hopefully be my big new piece for May First Friday at the Artful Dimensions Gallery. We all like to have new art to debut at our big monthly opening events. You will all get the First Reveal as soon as I finish the piece. Not sure what to call it. Any suggestions????????????????
