It's seems no matter what order I load my photos in, they come out different, very random. 'Sigh'. Oh well, here it is, May. The subtle green mossy looking stuff dangling below the sun, is some of my thread play. It actually says MAY, but is somewhat hidden (there I go with the hidden words again). Shisha mirrors on the 4 corners. The unusual tile-like stuff is actually soft squishy plastic , that is used for padding inside a cast(for a broken bone),I colored it with my fabric markers.
The black around the edge, is the Warm & Black batting that I used. I let it be the edge. No binding. The sun face is a glass tile that I had bought originally to put in my new shower, but when I did the tilework, I forgot I had this, & didn't find it until I was done, so I thought it'd be fun to incorporate it into one of my JQs. The 'flames' I did on wash-away stabilizer with Sulky Holoshimmer thread & bits of hand-dyed yellow wool rovings, then added the Oliver Twist hand-dyed red cotton thread.
The green material under the thread play mossy green, is a cotton Lame', that I burned with my cautery pen, & distressed it with a heat gun. Can you tell I like playing with dangerous tools?
