WATER; Everythings Coming Up Roses On Blooming Tuesday!

The third of my trilogy so far is WATER made up using dyed paper towels and dryer sheets and a strip of fabric got in the mix here too.

the three dimensional aspect at the bottom and top are scrunched up paper towels hand sewn on top

for added texture

otherwise I used rayon threads in dark green to machine sew free style on top...the reeds are made up of

layers of dyed dryer sheets and top sewn with multicolored thread then cut out of the whole cloth and sewn on to the piece. You are under water so remember to hold your breath!

Tomorrow we inherit the EARTH
the Trilogy becomes a Quartet

Happy Bloomin' Tuesday...Don't forget to stop and smell the roses!

    Suki, not sure, at first I thought on black canvases...then last night I thought I might cut them up and make three dimensional pieces from them...still thinking.

    Cris, I thought about Fish but did want to keep it as much to the element as possible. The reeds were pushing it a bit for me.
