I took a literal path for this month's trade. They didn't start that way and were intended to be more abstract.
I wrapped cotton fabric around a very large pine cone and then dipped it into an indigo vat. I was hoping for more mark making than I got but they still look the way the winter sky looks right before a snow storm.
I used an evergreen limb to print on the fabric with white paint. The pine cones are wooden beads marked with acrylic ink and a pen nib. The addition of a stick for the branch, upholstery gimp for pine needles and ice cycles from glass glitter finish the pieces.
