1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Forest enchantment within an Altoid tin on: Today at 05:19:34 AM
Made this for a swap. for a small piece, it sure took me awhile! I ordered a horse from the internet and painted her over. The unicorn horn is a toothpick. the wings are from a moth I found dried up on the attic windowsill. I looked for several hours for such a moth and thought I might find dozens. so when I got just one, I was sooo nervous that I would ruin the wings while glueing them on.

I melded together numerous blue, grey, and white embroidery flosses and created the waterfall at the left... did not get such a good pic of that, tho...

The above pic shows the simple lid of the tin. I covered it with fabric, then let one bit show thru by covering that with a piece of sycamore bark with its  typical hole in the middle. I am obsessed with creating things with sycamore bark!

I had such fun choosing mini branches as I wandered my property. I had one that would have been the most stunning tree evar but its branches were so numerous that I could not put enuf others in to create a real forest feel.
thanks for looking!!

Created this piece for a recent swap. It was my first attempt at using dots only... no lines anywhere. It was mesmerizing to do and I loved working on it. I am pleased with the results. I feel I can create a whole new feel with dots, after using just lines all my life!

I can understand why you had doubts about that shrine. I would have. It takes guts (no pun intended. Really!!) to make such an unusual piece. But often those are the ones that really rock and yours surely does!

Holy Moly that is one unique piece! Very very cool. I must know if the words dissected frog were actually in your wish list....  So unusual to have it made out of all fabricky stuff. Well done and a great start to the gallery!!!

Ok so I knew I'd been away from swapping for a long time (life just got too hectic) but I had no idea till I looked at my profile that it had been since Jan of 2013 for my last swap.  Can't wait to get back into it and I have always loved the ATC swaps so I'm happy I decided to start here.   Can't wait to start swapping again.   Grin
wooo hooo!  welcome back
