Here is my finished Guardian series. All these designs are based off differnet natural environments.
First is Grassland, made from 100% silk, some of which is tea dyed.
Second is Forest, felted wool with a cheesecloth secondary structure underneath. Moss, leaves and sticks have been felted into the piece as well.
Third is Coastal. Shibori dyed 100% silk, with shell and driftwood details.
Last one is Mountains. Hand dyed cotton, as well as underlayers of mixed fibres, sewn in many layers and then cut to add depth. Hand painted with acrylic paints. Shoulder armor is handmade paper painted with acrylics.
