It's finished! In January, I took a fabric collage class at Fibers in Motion in Multnomah Village with Darlene Veltman. After seeing Darlene's cover, I wanted one. She told me I had to make my own. For the first sewing project in years, I really enjoyed piecing some of the fabrics together that I brought back from Japan and embellishing the collage. It says "Om is where my art is". The great Buddha Diabutsu from Kamakura sits on a lotus flower.
The beaded embellishments add color and texture. It's hard to see but the background green fabric behind the Buddha is embellished with small gold seed beads to make it look quilted.
