Here’s a new piece I made in the past week. I’m calling it “The Source of Her Magic.” When I made “Magpie’s Hoard” last month, I had so much fun using my embellishments, and “marrying” them together with hand and machine stitching that I decided to make another, similar piece. This one features the following materials:

Angelina fiber
Angelina film
felted wool beads
metal washer stained with alcohol inks and embossed
melted CD
silk sari waste
metal charm
polymer clay
hand-dyed burlap
hand-dyed cheesecloth
glass beads
perle cotton
cotton thread
cotton fabric
wool/polyester batting

… pretty much everything but the kitchen sink!
