13 X 14
I chose a geode eroding out of its host rock as my nature subject. My geologist husband thinks it looks more like a sea creature. My original background idea didn’t work out for the rhythm portion of the challenge so I now have a more patterned background. The background fabric is a decorator fabric sample which looked stenciled and stamped. I added the raw edge cotton and silk shapes and encouraged fraying for my “erosion”.
The center of the geode is a left over piece from a purse I made using Texture Magic™ and the white is from the lining of my wedding dress.
As always, I learned quite a bit from this challenge. Thanks Lisa for introducing me to Andy Goldsworthy.
