Friday Face Off 9/16/22

Welcome to the September 16th version of the Friday Face Off.  For today's "challenge" I have created another quilted face using both batik and hand dyed fabrics.  I love working with both of these fabrics when I am creating.  The colors are richer because they penetrate through the fabric.  Batiks are also a type of  dyed fabric rather than a printed fabric.  This means that you can use either side of the fabric (in most cases) to create as you wish. 

The background for this face is a lovely red/orange that blends into a rich yellow. 

The hair is all made of batik fabrics as are the clothing and the nose. 
I believe that all of the other fabrics are hand dyed. 
While nearly all of the quilting is done with black to achieve 
a sketched quality, the face is quilted with a green thread. 
The background is quilted with a yellow thread. 
Soon, the piece will have a black fused binding added.
Then it will be mounted on a black-edged art canvas for ease of hanging. 

I am linking up with  DVArtist for the Friday FaceOff.

Until Next Time,  
Stay Creative
