This was a 2 for 1 Challenge. I had the Fiberactions Challenge word "Departure", & the Calendar Girls challenge "Our Inner Animal". I decided to make a Raven, who has been very special to me ever since I came to Alaska. I do like to wear black, but love other colors too, so I started on him by thread painting with neon brights, then over laid them with the blacks. I surrounded him with bits & baubles of fused glass made by my BFF Mindy, & friendly plastic, & a bit of jewelry. The background includes Angelina Fibers under black Tulle. I did Thread play on Wash-away stabilizer for both the Raven & the cabochons to hold more glass galaxies on the upper left. The background moon is glow-in-the-dark fabric.
