I have been so excited about this months Art Elements challenge because I use swirls in almost everything I do! Sometimes it is in the final touch on a painting and sometimes it is a big part of the design. Wherever they are they are fun and suggest movement.
Fabric design is my go to project when I need to just do something creative for myself. This month I am showing you a batik piece with swirls. First I had to dye the fabric the color of the swirls, then draw the swirls on with wax, then discharge the color from the background until it was the lighter turquoise.
I made a little fold over pouch with a lampworked glass fish, which I also created. He has a little Swirl also.
Here is a shot of the Swirl batik on the inside of the pouch.
I hope you enjoyed my Swirl piece. Be sure and check out the work of other artists that participated on the Art Elements blog.
