Managed to get the first challenge piece finished. Its inspiration was an aerial photo of desolation Canyon in America. Distorted it in Photoshop using polar co-ordinates and then changed the colours. Created a felt base then added some painted tissue, tyvek and lutrador. A bit of heat and also soldering, and stitching and then finished. I'm not entirely happy with it and might go and do some painting on it once the Grand Prix has finished.
