You can go to my blog for a full discription of this piece:  http://somethingcleveraboutnothing.blogspot.com/2009/06/price-of-peace.html

I have been reading Melanie Testa's book, Inspired to Quilt, and used a few of her ideas from the book.  I used Citrasolv to transfer the image I made on my computer, then used colored pencils, paintstiks and thread painting to enhance the transferred image.  I also used a homemade foam stamp to stamp leaves onto a piece of silk organza to layer over the top.

I love the title of your piece as well as the scene. I would have liked to see a flag next to one of the stones though. Nice job. Nancy

Thank you for your comments.  I like the idea of the flag but it never occurred to me.  I guess that would have brought home the soldier motif better.  Thanks!

Good work, Lisa! Nice to see your use of organza and to hear your combination of techniques! That is what it is all about!
