Friday Collage - Wk 35

The Face in the Leaves

I'm heading up to Seattle to see Oscar Peterson - a little jazz piano and a nice dinner with the love of my life... life is good! But that did mean that I couldn't put off working on my friday collage. I knew what I was going to work on, the green man and since I was feeling pretty lazy I created this piece by sketching out the tree trunk and branches with the sewing machine. Next, I put a face on the trunk and leaves on the branches. I used charcoal paintstik to give the background some depth and then finished quilting around the leaves. A little fusible web, some shiny green fabric and I was done.

The JQC for August, the Green Man, and the Medusa are all wonderful. I especially love the quilting and subdued colors in the Green Man piece.
