Completed Tree Fragment Series

I promised that I would show you when I completed the Tree Fragment Birch piece that I showed you last week. I stretched the background fabric around a canvas and fused a piece of brown paper to the back to cover the fabric edges and staples. I ended up gluing the birch tree down with soft gel medium. I liked the idea of using stitches but I thought the silk fabric tree was just too fragile and I was afraid the stitching would tear it apart.

Here you can see the finished birch tree and the backing.

These are the two other pieces in this series. I was really rushing to get these all done because I am putting them into the Uncommon Threads exhibition at the Bigfork Cultural Center in September. 

Here are all three pieces together. I photographed them on the floor but you get the idea. So if you’re in the Bigfork, Montana area in September, make sure to stop by to see the exhibit.

About ruthlane

When I discovered felting in 2007, I finally found the creative outlet for which I had been searching. I love that the versatility of fiber allows me to “play” with a wide variety of materials including wool, silk, fabrics, yarns and threads. Creating one of a kind fiber art pieces to share with the world fulfills my creative passion.

  1. They are all lovely and I’m glad you didn’t stitch the birch. That’s my favorite. Good luck at the exhibition! Are selling them there, too!

  2. Agreed – the birch looks good with no stitching – it’s a wonderful piece of art. The trio complement each other beautifully when seen side by side. Good luck with the show (and sales!).

    Very nice autumnal trio – hope it’s a great sale

  5. I like all of them Ruth. I like how the top left one flows of the canvas. They do go together well. I hope that helps to sell them.
