Ice field at Twilight

Here is my small piece called Ice Field at Twilight. I recognize that twilight can occur any time of day in some places . The background is a hand painted whole cloth piece. I fused a pleated and folded piece of white cotton on top and then machine quilted it, adding accents of silver on the folds. I accented the colour in the sky a bit with with a peach-y cololured chalk pastel, and did a tiny bit of the same colour on the folds of the "ice". The mountain and shore are hand dyed cotton. Over all I'm pleased with it. It is about 13" by 18"

Did you pleat and fold before you fused, or as you fused? I am so intrigued with this process. Wonderful effects! Love the sky as well :-)

I love the simplicity of this piece. It captures the coldness of a winter day. Brrr. The soft colors in the sky really add to the piece. The pleats and folds in the snow in the foreground are just the right texture for the snow and ice. Very nice.
