Cotton fabric rusted with steel wool and old pieces of metal -- accented with colored pencils. Bird is constructed from pieces of hand dyed fabric sewn onto a water soluble stabilzer.
What was your inspiration?
I really enjoyed Lola's class and it got me to thinking about some of my hand dyes that didn't come out as "vibrant" as I would have liked. So I took a piece of fabric I had rusted and enhanced it greatly with the pencils. Loved it! Meanwhile, I was experimenting with how to use a bunch of hand dyed scraps that I had cut up for a "confetti" project (never completed). Voila -- birds!
What are you most proud of?
I love the juxtaposition of the bird on the fabric.
