Seaside swap

Seaside swap, originally uploaded by jckirner.

Fiber Art Trading time again. I'm aiming to participate in one swap per month. This time it was triangles for bunting banners with a seaside theme.

I wanted to play with the feeling of being at the beach. I usually walk the waterline and rarely swim. I like to watch the sun through the waves and the myriad of colors that are produced. My triangles are muslin and batting sandwiches., The water was painted with Setacolor fabric paints and some sunprinting, the sand is batting painted with Jacquard Dynaflows. To give a little more interest I added some word stamping. I tried adding some embellishments, but they looked very hokey.

I'm pleased with the feeling they evoke.
