|A little collage using acrylic inks, teabags, drawing on abaca paper, tea labels, pattern tissue. I have quilted an old tile motive over top.|
But back to Joshua 3:16: That the waters which came down from above stood and rose up upon an heap very far from the city Adam, that is beside Zaretan: and those that came down toward the sea of the plain, even the salt sea, failed, and were cut off: and the people passed over right against Jericho.
I already had the design ready for months, but wasn't completely happy with my colour scheme. I have started afresh and decided to use what's in my stash. One of them was a nice aqua colour which I hand dyed and sprinkled with salt. So it came out with a nice 'water-look'.
I am up to putting all my layers together - batting and a backing. And then ready for quilting it. Haven't though about how to quilt it yet....Probably some diagonal lines on the footsteps and some stone/wall textured look for the looming walls of Jericho. Here's the piece so far:
