I would like to share pictures of my 2 pieces for the fiber art challenge in mixed media. The first one is based on the quoted poem; Nevermore, by Edgar Allen Poe. It is quilted, beaded, and painted.
"Nevermore" uses a discarded dryer sheet for the printing. With the addition of gel Medium it became crystalline in appearance. I also used old newspaper clippings about terror during the cold war. The raven was printed on silk and then painted.
The second piece is part of a Sistahood challenge based on "Four and Twenty Blackbirds baked in a Pie". It consists of quilting and felted sculptures. We were given a pattern size and fabric kit which had to be used. The entire piece will be posted soon.
