week 33--soft

Hey! Remember me?!? Yeah, I'm WAAAAY behind this time. Life and holidays and all. It happens. I thought I'd try to get in at least one more piece before the year end. I'd had the idea for this one a long time ago, but never took the time to do it. Pretty lame execution, but I just wanted to get it done. "This is 'soft'?" you ask...well, I didn't want to do a baby's bottom ;-} and certain soft fabrics wouldn't necessarily show up as such in a photo (though yes, this project was intended more for trying techniques than for online display). I'd thought of the appearance of softness as mountains recede into the distance, and that's what I tried here.

I will continue this project in the new year, though I have ideas for others...

Rayon velvet base, blue/gold weave taffeta 'sky', layered-then-cut-away tulle.
