Crafting to keep insanity at bay.

« on: February 27, 2013 03:54:29 PM »

I've been seeing a lot of prayer flags around the web lately and find them intriguing. Not really quilting nor proper sewing either - it sounds right up my alley! I wanted to play with different fabric textures as well as stitching and found objects and incorporated some screen printing as well. So the opportunity to swap with the insanely awesome cackle came up and I thought this would be a good chance to play around with this. She told me she has a fondness for moon-gazing rabbits so rather than be strictly literal, I decided to stitch an abstracted moon diagram I found around the rabbit almost like a halo. I used some luscious handmade felt that LeapFeetFirst made for me to create the leaves and did more stitching, sewing, and general mess-making to complete this. The moons are watch bits and pieces I've had forever - I spritzed them with some ocher alcohol ink and it made a lovely effect - I couldn't have asked for better. The only thing I did to it after these pictures were taken was add two tabs to the top so it could be hung easily.

What a fantastic mixed media piece - I love the rabbit image, and the colours are perfect!  I love the distressed look, and how it highlights the stark rabbit image.

This is just fantastic, I love everything about it.  So much detail, so much to look at, but somehow not too busy either.

I thought of Watership Down too -- something about the colors (along with the bunny, of course) really just captures that story! But I really love how you incorporated the keys at the bottom.  I have a bunch of modernish keys that I have been staring at and trying to figure out how to use in something -- they look right at home on a prayer flag!

I absolutely love this piece! It's the sort of thing that provides endless happiness just staring at it and noticing a different detail each time. Fabulous  Cheesy
