WIPW - A Bit More Colour

Work In Progress Wednesday.

Mola
I have made a few more slits (lower left) and filled them with various coloured pieces of fabric, needle turned, and am now wondering what to do with the empty space to the left.

Mola - Snippets of Interest
The Cuna Indians inhabit 49 of the approximately 365 small islands in the San Blas Archipelago, Panama. The islands are off the hurricane path, but are at risk from sea level rise, and might be uninhabitable in the late 21st century.

I absolutely love seeing your updates on this piece. The colors are all so vibrant! Lovely work.

More bits of color added, more sparkle. Like a bright morning in the jungle with splashes of light coming through the leaf canopy.

Rachel said...

I'm sure you'll think of something for that last section!

A lot of the land on which first peoples live is under threat as is their cultures.

This looks great!

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you!

Queeniepatch said...

You are so poetic!

Queeniepatch said...

I have come up with an idea, so will sharpen the scissors tonight.

Queeniepatch said...

Yes, and I'd say their lifestyle is not the reason the sea level is rising, but they have to pay the price of others' mistreatment of nature.

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you.

It's looking great! How about a visiting bumble bee or butterfly?

Queeniepatch said...

Good idea, but the location is not the best - a bee or butterfly would circle round the flowers, not the ground, I think.
Actually I have now worked a kind of plant there... show and tell on Wednesday.

I really like the effect of those batik prints. It looks great to me. Now I need to get inspired.

Linda Calverley said...

It's looking good. I didn't realise there were so many islands.

I think Janie's comment says it all. such a joyous bursting of colour.
I'm keen to see the next step.

Queeniepatch said...

The best thing with batik is that it doesn't fray much!

Queeniepatch said...

Many of them are just sandbanks sticking up over the water's surface - still. Soon some of them are gone, I fear.

Queeniepatch said...

It is important not to add too bright or outstanding colours - that would drown the flowers.
