A Fishy Tale with PDCC No: 22



It is the PDC challenge No: 22 this week. Here are the challenge colours:




I decided to visit a piece of work I made some time ago, which never felt quite right. In the original make I just had some stamped fish. This felt very flat and 2D'ish, so the thought came to me to actually make fish so it was much more like viewing sardines in a can. 


I started off spraying cotton with glimmer mist in the colours from the challenge. hen stamping and sewing fish. Then adding more of the colours from the challenge  with paint. I also liked the link with "Can you see the Sea" and I had images of the sardines squealing this to each other. Bit macabre , but there you go!
