Shrine to Land and Sky

I had lots of fun with this piece. Started out knowing the shape I wanted to take, but then some designs just get a mind of their own..The sky is a mixture of my hand dyes, hand painted fabric and sky photos I took here at home. I experimented with different decorative stitches on my machine, adding yarn and beads to out line. Hand stitching with hand dyed cotton thread, netting. buttons and free motion quilting. The center piece I stamped into air clay and painted with acrylic paint. I used a variety of upholstery and batik fabrics in addition to the hand dyed pieces. This Mixed Media Landscape is 17"W X 16 1/4 L.
