Prayer Flag by Judy Gula, owner of Artistic Artifacts 

" At my shop, Artistic Artifacts, I host Judy’s Altered Minds, a fiber/mixed media art group that meets monthly, and the April 27 meeting was devoted to creating prayer flags. Because of a teaching obligation I had to miss the fun that day, but I wanted to participate too! I began with fabric I monoprinted using a Gelli Arts™ Gel Printing Plate, collected scraps of ribbon and fabric. I laid out fabric strips and ribbon as I sewed the seam to create the hanging sleeve, so in one step I had the addition of hanging embellishments too. This is one of the flags I made dedicated to the idea of protecting our teenagers from suicide. Unfortunately our local High School has lost several students to suicide in the recent years, and it has affected my community greatly. Please visit my blog to learn more:
