Under the Surface - Vivian Kapusta - Octopus's Garden
When I first heard the title 'Under the Surface' ... the song 'Octopus's Garden' popped into my head and would not leave!
I love doing these small quilts and trying new techniques. The background fabric is painted with the 'scrunch' method. The rocks at the bottom are plastic envelope material that was painted and treated with a heat torch to make it bubble. The seafloor is an iridescent sheer. The sea animals are bits of my hand dye. I highlighted the sun touched areas with a little iridescent paint.Thread painting finished it off.
