Below the page Evi ( Germany) made for me. The last page for my 'Japan/China' book.
Now I have to make a cover and bind the pages from this swap.

Fabric-book pages

 This fabric book page has the theme "your own mola".
 I drew a butterfly/moth from an aboriginal painting and made this in mola style.
I have used 5 layers of fabric to get this result.
 The body is the first fabric, second white, third orange, fourth black and on top the dark green.
It flew to Helga in Germany.
 The size is 15 x 15 cm. ( 6")
Below the page I got from Robin ( Australia).
Robin made a page inspired by her favorite painter: Sir Sydney Nolan.
This is a painting from 1970, Paradise Garden series.
An unknown painter for me but that is the fun of my theme: "an impression of your favorite art painting", which I choose for this new swap round in the Fibre Fever group.
