Circle of Valley Life / Stitch & Slash

Project Description

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.

What you will need

  • 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.

Meditating asked:
This is top drawer. The fabric choices as well as the somewhat monochromatic palate gives it a unique tribal vibe that is sorta new age and eclectic. It reminds me of a 21st century cave drawing. This is really creative. Good show!
cari2rcky answered:
WOW! Thank you. Recently showed the wall hanging at an Art's Fest and recieved a lot of compliments on my work.
sarahsgonervn asked:
Good grief, I'm just stunned. I'm looking at the piece, and my brain is spinning, wondering how you knew just where those animals were, so you could let them show. Hmmm. Maybe hold it up to a window? It's absolutely wonderful, and thank you for sharing your gifted talent.
cari2rcky answered:
It was too simple to find the animals, I used the back of the print to show me where they were situated.
