The African piece is rust stained fabric with the African skyline cut from a piece of commercial fabric, a leftover flower from another African piece I did last year, and a mask cut from a commercial print with frayed burlap beard. The white elephants are beads and the whole thing is free-motion quilted.
The sax piece is a glittered sax Christmas tree ornament, the hands and face are black polymer clay and the background is a commercial print with music notes on it. Sheer metallic gold netting with an overlay of heavy black mesh. 'Liquid gold' applique notes and echo quilted lines.
