An underwater abstract made of leftovers from my 2002 Bernina Fashion Show ensemble "Venus On The Half Shell: Day Two". Background collage with 3-D embellishments, machine made lace, covered washers and other goodies. There's something soothing about working with underwater themes and colors - rather like a mini trip to the ocean.
