The Wizard of Oz was one of my favorite movies as a child. I loved it, but those flying monkeys and the witch scared me so much I had to cover my eyes when they came on the screen!! There were so many memorable quotes from it that I had a hard time choosing my favorite!!
I painted fabric for the rolling hills to which I added dots of fabric paint to mimic the sleep inducing poppies encountered on the journey to OZ. The Emerald City, yellow brick road, Dorothy , basket, Toto, and the larger poppies are fused, beaded, jeweled and embellished with fabric pens. I added a little machine quilting to the hills and mylar to make Oz sparkle. The quote is printed on hand dyed fabric.
