I wrote about participating in Kimberly Law's
"Fabric of Nature" ATC swap, here
. I made this little homage to the sea, all out of fabric (no paper allowed!), per her swap guidelines:
She challenged us further, once we received all of the other artists' swaps in return, to figure out a way to display them all together. Wanting to keep with the 'Nature' theme, I envisioned some sort of twiggy frame to house them. I planned to go out in the yard and gather fallen branches and wire something together....and then I remembered I had this twig house-shaped planter out in the garage: PERFECT!
I arranged them all together like a tiny patchwork quilt and fastened them to the frame. Amy's more vividly colored felted creation (it's awesome!) is in the eave at the top, and the darker green signage I'm adding at the bottom balances the color. The rest, mainly in creams and ecru with little hints of color, are grouped together in the middle. I just love it! And I LOVE all of the beautifully crafted little treasures... each so detailed, each so different.
Here's a closer look at the scrumptious, tiny 'Nature' creations that were sent to me:
Thanks, everyone, for a great swap!
