Art Elements Swirl Challenge

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.

  1. So cute! I love the pouch, the swirly patterns on it, and the complementing colors. The fish – it is just the most perfect addition! And did I mention the project is really cute overall? πŸ™‚
