Stitch & Slash »
Type of item: Home Decor
4 Batiks with the Elk scene as the bottom layer. Embellished with wool and ribbon, plus beads and orange tinted tail feather from a Flicker. No birds were hurt in this creation.
What was your inspiration?
The Stitch & Slash course, with Carol Ann Waugh and then just trying out a different Fabric Layer, using Elk fibre in the background. We have a competition with Circles coming up and wanted to try something different.
What are you most proud of?
I see a body, head shape in the center, so I added bead and feather work to make it look like a headdress. Strangely enough I was thinking I needed some or a feather and the next morning a Northern Flicker left me a tail feather in the yard. Thoughtful of him.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Just enjoy. Nothing better than tearing up material.
