finding your voice


While this piece was vaguely contemplated from the onset as a sort of storytelling piece, it was during week four of Bea's Dog in the Hole Down the Rabbit Hole challenge that it has started to emerge as related to finding one's voice.




For this part of the challenge, the altered top was embellished with buttons, beads, yo-yos, and a gold-tinted sculpey face nested inside a vintage crocheted shade pull leading to the text "found her voice."   


There is also a doily, small wooden clock face with a bead, and a small glass vial containing more text and wired with bead to the piece. A couple of paper beads are also included.

I've really enjoyed watching this piece evolve. It has a quiet confidence about it, very self-contained. Very nicely done.

My favorite part is the face with the lace around it. So unique. That was the first thing that grabbed me. Very soft and subtle.

I am sooooo in love with this piece. It definitely has the 'wow' factor in spite of the softness of the color.

Deb I love the musical dance your fragile fibers are performing. The simplicity is a paradox...the crochet flower is a delicate reminder why I love working in fibers. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Well I'd say you're doing just fine in the "finding your voice" department. This is so pretty. Lots of stuff to look at in this piece. And that wavy blue piece in the post above this one - awesome.

Marvelous and creamy, dreamy. It's fun to see these pieces evolve. Love our blue weaving, too.
