NC Symposium cont...

To continue my little "brag-a-thon" of students work, here are some more of the wonderful pieces started in my Layered Naturescapes class.
 This piece was to feature water lilies and bright flowers.
 This was a very colorful desert scene with organza already in place, some screening on top and underneath.  I love the way the one screen resembles sage brush.

One piece had some fernlike images screened on fabric and then filled in with Derwents inktense pencils which are easy to apply, blended with water and are permanent. What a great tool for art quilts.
 I loved the story behind this piece - a beloved tree and landmark on their property was slowly dying.  A photograph served as inspiration to recreate it in fabric.
 Crashing waves were to be added to the horizon of this piece, it's off to a wonderful start. I love all the screening in the foreground.
 The moon and clouds add a sense of mystery to this piece with organza already in place to give it lots of dimension.
 It took a couple of tries to get the organza the right color for the base fabric of this piece but the results are perfect. The imagery is wonderful - the mushroom and ferns on top add such movement.
 This next piece featured a pond and forest with lots of lovely foliage in the foreground.
 Love the big old tree and orange moon. The background fabric was quite busy but worked beautifully with chosen imagery.
 Love the pop of color ...
A fun workshop and symposium. Thank you to all my wonderful students who are the heart and soul of these gatherings and make them so worthwhile.
