Sacred Threads - Accepted!!




I got the news last weekend that one of my pieces was accepted to Sacred Threads!!! So exciting! After a slew of rejections, this one finally got the proverbial high 5!!

My piece is for the area of spirituality. I named it "In The Silence I Have Seen Him." I had done this for the black and white challenge but wasn't done in time for last entry into Sacred Threads so I had to wait until now to try. This was a whole piece white fabric and I sketched on the angel with pencil. I worked in layers using black setacolor and aloe vera gel to get the saturation and different layers of gray. Then "sketched" the details using my sewing machine. I went in with shiva paintstiks in white and black to add details and additional shading. I love this piece and hope others will too.

Patty, this is such an awesome work and I am so excited for you getting in this show with it. I think you can get in other shows too. I personally think it is award-winning. Good luck and let us know what happens. I didn't see any announcement on FB about this...just happened to check your blog today...I wanted to see what new ATC's you were working on. ;=)
