Raven the Collector

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.

You outdid yourself with the subject and execution this time-I love the depth of color on the crow and the use of 'jewels'-just the right touch!

This is stunning! I love the hints of color under the raven's black -- it lends a wonderful iridescence.

He is AweSome!! Everytime I told Pam (Floyd's step-sis) something you did or are doing....she'd say "Shut up Mel! It exhausts me just hearing all the things she does! (over achiever)" She's so much fun!
