Winter Birches

Last summer I took a class on “making” fabric–by which the teacher meant take plain fabric and paint/stamp/stencil/etc. to embellish it.  I did this recently using a credit card (not my current one!) dipped in black paint to make marks on muslin.  I knew I wanted to use the new fabric for a birch bark effect.  I think it turned out well.  I still have some of the fabric, so I may do another birch piece some time.  The “snow” layer in this one is pieced triangles in white/neutral colors.  The border is an Australian fabric that I thought conveyed a windy day.
