surface tension . . .


Today is the Fiberactions reveal day.
We created pieces using the word stretch as our challenge theme.

Seemingly like magic, the water strider skates across the pond as if on a length of stretched plastic wrap.  Magic, it is not. In addition to his hairy legs which trap tiny air bubbles and act like life preservers; it is surface tension which allows him to stay afloat and stride so gracefully.

I love this Kathy! Such vibrant color, wonderful contrast and movement. The texture created with the stitching really does finish it!

This has definitely got that WOW factor! Your use of colour is so striking.....then you have managed to convey the feel of movement and depth so brilliantly!
You certainly rose to the challenge, didn't you?
