Experimenting with resists

I saw a beautiful textile of folded and pleated fabrics created to look like a waterfall and wanted to try something similar with felt. I only had a limited amount of blue merino roving so I didn't make as many ruffles as I would have like to, but I am pleased with the results.

By laying down long strips of plastic between the fibers I was able to create these dimensional ruffles. I call this piece Abstract Waterfall. I had a couple photos of the process but seem to have lost them :(
