The Postmark'd Art group selected fire as the element for this exchange and I jumped at the chance to participate.  It was a lot of fun except that I now have the Johnny Cash song "Ring of Fire" stuck in my head. The piece is 12 inches by 12 inches and it will be cut into six (4" x 6") postcards. I'll mail off 5 and keep one for myself. When the exchange is over I will have 6 examples of how to create fire. How cool is that! I used raw edge applique for the flames and needle felting to create some smoke. I also used my Derwent Inktense watersoluble ink pencils to add color to the tips of the yellow fabric that I used. I love this group and couldn't image not having the exchange. I can't believe we're on our 10th round!

    It's interesting to see how you interpreted FIRE!
    Being an Aussie (and it's bush-fire season) I chose to interpret "fire" as a firestorm in a paddock.The WiP result is over on my blog

    I couldn't bear to cut it up,so am playing with another version.
    Glad to see that you also enjoy needle felting!

  2. Karen: I love it! I have started to think what I will do, and your piece is very inspirational! Great job!
