I have to say these turned out a lot better than I had planned! All of these were done with some type of Shibori technique then parfait dyed. The top piece (my absolute favorite) I acutally twisted on the bias tightly & wrapped itself around it so it created like a little hair bun. The blue piece, I actually folded into quarters & then rolled it up into itself to create a ball. The third piece (green), I actually, laid it flat and picked it up from the center & folded it into 4 pie shaped pieces & then rolled it tightly. Each of the pieces were bound together with rubber bands so they'd stay tightly together. The 4th picture is a group of some other colors I tried with different shibori techniques. I have to say, I was pretty pleased with this study.

This piece was created by hand weaving 1/4" cut strips together. After the strips were woven I then embellished the surface with beading.
I am happy to say that it was one of the 52 that was chosen to be published for the Artcard Deck that will be available for sale to the public in October of 2007. I can actually say that I am now a published artist!!
