Guardian Spirits by Joy Hegglund

Nothing makes me happier than seeing my hand marbled fabrics turned into wonderful, brilliant, amazing creations.  A couple of Summers ago I received a this photo from Joy Hegglund.  She had taken the photo on Hornby Island, BC, Canada.  Joy was excited to be taking a class from Kathy McNeil and she would be using this photo.  Kathy was kind enough to recommend my hand marbled fabrics to her students.  Joy wanted a range of grays dark to light and a selection of blacks.  I started experimenting with a gradation of grays, dying them and then marbling.  Joy had planned ahead, so I was able to get her hand marbled fabrics to her in plenty of time class her class.

It takes my breath away.  I love seeing the original photo and then Joy’s creation.  Is it just me are do I see faces in some of the rocks?
