Let the ice melt, set the energy free


Have been stitching all that I can and now I'm so happy to share this piece with you. It took me more than a week of intense stitching. And removing the excess paper was nerve-wrecking as was stitching three new layers of paper to it.


All of this started with visiting an ice-sculpture festival in Nordborg where Susanne Ahrenkiel was demonstrating her skills with a big chainsaw while creating a gorgeous ice-sculpture. The third picture in the link is my source of inspiration for this piece.



In this piece I used watercolour paper, wallpaper, mulberry paper and tracing paper and so at the finish there is a relatively sturdy piece of work.


And here you can see an overview of Let the ice melt, set the energy free!

Have a fabulous weekend!
