Here is a sample of four more segments spun into Teesha's Yarn. More imagery and texture went into these than what is photographed here. Each segment represents a page in a artist's journal. As with many mixed media journals, the creative process is executed in layers. This is also true with this piece, as more objects and elements will be plied into the yarn that correspond to each page, and a final layering of hand stitching and embellishing will come into play.
I received this little kit as a trade at ArtFiberFest awhile back, and finally found some idle time to play and embellish the coffee sleeve that came so neatly packaged in a coffee cup with fabric, yarn bits and beads. I added some metal to the mix and am now enjoying the finished results along with my favorite beverage: Cappuccino, mostly dry, with half a shot of hazelnut.

Above is the section of Arlee Barr's Corpse I worked on. I really love how cohesive this piece turned out and think that I will borrow her format in the future. By not segmenting the design into perfect squares as I did with mine, the various techniques used seem to flow more seamlessly into each other. This piece is heading to the Cyber Fyber Exhibit opening this month.
