My initial thought at the word "Structure" was to go to the basic elemental structure of atoms, molecules or DNA. My next thought was something like framework of buildings, houses, cities, etc., but then I thought about the simple Cairn. A rock structure that is built by hikers to mark safe passages to ford rivers. The rivers in Alaska, are all glacial, & tend to be milky gray to turquoise. You can't see the bottoms, because of the glacial silt, so Cairns are set up on both sides of the river to show hikers safe passage.
All but one of the rocks are made from hand dyed & painted silk. Shibori dyed & wrapped on a pole with rocks inside until the fabric was dry, then the rocks removed, & the silk stuffed with bits of wool batting to help maintain the structure of each rock. A fusible stabilizer was then fused to the back of the 'rocks' to make it easier to handle when appliqueing to the background.There is one real rock, in a spot where there was too much of a gap in the rock applique.I put thread through a button then glued the button to the rock, & sewed it in place (ala Allie Aller's technique).
The ground was done with bits of silk & wool roving, & yarns, needle felted & stitched. The Raven, the Sentinel on the pathway, was made entirely from thread on wash-away stabilizer. The background fabric was painted with Dynaflow textile paints. The bushes were made from couched yarns, & raw edge applique' leaves, cut from my own straw dyed fabric.
I want to say thank you all for including me in these challenges. I have really enjoyed them, as well as getting to know each of you a little bit more.
