Orcas at Play... June Waterways.

Haiku:
Waterways flowing
Friend and foe, rage and calm
An Orca pod plays

 I went through the usual... writing down what the word brought to mind... especially since Kathy used the word 'ocean'...then focused on what had to be the most pleasant day trip of a lifetime. Hence my 'Orca's at Play'. On that trip, at one time I counted 25 dorsel fins above the water... then to hear the sound below the water as they communicated... well, what can I say, except 'AWESOME'!
I hope you enjoy my experience through this small vignette....

I used painted Steam-a-seam for the water, with a bit of color above and below. In keeping with my purpose so to speak, I again journalled and used a small bit of fabric.
Here is what the painted Steam-a-seam looked like before I cut ouit the piece I wanted.

I look forward to your comments...

Carole--WOW!
Painted Steam a Seam what a great idea and it has so much movement. Is that from where the paper was still on?
I sort of expected this to be Silvia's piece:)

Carole,
What a wonderful day you must have had. I think that you have captured your haiku perfectly. Love the use of the painted fusible web, such an interesting pattern it created and the colors are yummy!

This one is so beautiful Carole. How I would love to see your journal in person. I just can't seem to get into the swing of it. I go gangbusters for a month or two and then kind of let it slide. It's hard to go back to!
Painting Steam-a-seam is a definite on my soon to try...it's terrific!
Love your haiku
Cherie
