Ray of Hope -Collage Mania 2009

Rays Of Hope


.Ray of Hope10×8 inches .                                               At the end of every dark tunnel there is a ray of light. Never loose Hope.


I have dyed the background pure cotton pink fabric  in indigo dye using the shibori and blocking techniques. It was then layered with felt backing , embellished with metallic thread, bobbin thread embroidery, crystal beads,sequins, free motion writing with  silver metallic thread and quilted with variegated thread. The photographs of hands and flower are printed on special fabric using the ink jet printer and  machine appliqued on top. The quilt is  mounted on a board. And ready to frame.


I have donated  this work to  Collage mania 2009-Fiber artists for a cause
