winter vision - a new art quilt
New small art quilt - #4 - only 96 to go!
I did frame this one. I wanted to see if I like the deep frame wrap around look to mount these babies on and I do! Can't really see much of it here but you get the idea.
Again, I experimented with texture and dimension. Like my "Let Them Be Wild" quilt(Turtle Moon Impressions: Let Them Be Wild) I used small scraps of fabric hand-tied with embroidery thread to build a textural quality. This time, they're the shape of leaves and some are printed with the text of a some words I journaled (also on the top of the frame) about taking the photo which is also digitally printed on cotton - an old sheet, in fact, prepared with inkAid. It's also bordered with a sliver of one of my new digital skins and quilted with gold metallic thread. I'm doing the happy artist dance!
