The members of my fibre arts group are creating projects that represent what Canada means to each of us. The main criteria was to not buy anything new, to just use what we had in our stash. No problem. I have a ton of stuff! We will bring our finished creations to our September meeting.
The landscape of Canada is the first image that came to mind; its vastness and diverse geography. I see Canada as the West, the middle, and the East so my project became a triptych. I had a box full of batiks in every colour I needed so that became the basis for the landscape. Here are some of the parts in progress. I will post the finished project as soon as I get the sections mounted on the canvases. (note to self: make your projects a standard size so you don't have to get canvases made!)
