"The Ravens of Angels Crest"
Thom Atkins

"Ravens" was inspired by a technique I learned from Meri Vahl. Netting is used to capture bits of cut fabric for trees and birds, and wool roving for the clouds, holding them in place until the layers are sewn down. The background is one fabric which transitions from almost black to the off-white down at the tree line. I?ve used glass beads and sequins for the snowflakes.

My thanks to Robert DeMarr for his pictures of crows which provided the inspiration for my ravens.
