Barbara's flamingo was born out of some hot pink lace she found containing 3-D roses. If you look closely you can see the dimension in the bird that creates its fabulous body!
She had another piece with her today but obviously I failed to photograph it. Sorry Judy.
You can add it in if you like!
We have watched Yvonne's Bear piece come together over the last few meetings. She used a technique similar to collage putting tiny black pieces on the base to form the dimensional bear. Her quilted background is her brother's art studio Bear Paw Studios in the background. This will be presented to him for Christmas!
The requirements were that the work have a house on it and be 14 x 14 exactly.
If I could I would have stolen it!
Bebe was working on a challenge from another group: A Still Live. She created a drawing base and used water color crayons to create her colors. She deepens the colors by adding layers upon the lighter colors that have dried.
She has an eye for her subject and used color cards to find the colors that would bring her roses to the forefront.
Glen showed her piece from a class by Tracy Gallagher put on by Sassi Strippers Guild. Tracy is an accomplished collage maker and has taught several classes in the area.
She is also a member of our Fiber Group!
the Fleur de Lis is still a work in progress, but it is shaping up nicely. The technique is adaptable to a number of styles and platforms for fiber artists.
Glen also had a class project from Sassi Strippers member Merline Lewis. She taught Flower Arranging in Fabric using real petals from real flowers adhered to a background fabric using misty fuse.
Glen is completing the work using free motion stitching throughout.
