I made this series of three fabric collage landscapes using the hoops as embellishments.
This one is called Encircled Home. It's 9x4 inches.
I really love the way the beautiful ceramic ring draws the eye to the tiny house.
The fabric is printed with bubble wrap and paint. Of course, I included hand embroidery on each piece.
This is Scattered Sunlight. Also about 9x4 inches.
Each piece in this collection includes repeated elements... the bubble wrap pattern, the yellow bars at the edge ...
and the "stars" in the sky.
Lastly, we have Rosy Ring. It's 9x5.5 inches.
Don't those French knots look fun nestled in the dainty ring?
Here you can really see the subtle color variations in the ceramic embellishment. I took these colors as inspiration for the whole series.
Check out what the other artists created with Karen's lovely hoops.
Thanks Lorelei and Karen!
These three little fabric collages are listed in my Etsy shop.
