Looking for texture

I found this piece of bark from a tree near my house. I liked the irregularity of the pattern but it reminded me of a fabric(lace). I have always been drawn to fabrics because of the intricacy of the treads which forms something bigger, strong and wearable. The pattern is fluid looking. It has flow, suggesting movement without having any actual movement. I will hopefully be able to add colour and use it with the wire rings.

Hi Lou. Wow, you have been busy !
I am interested in the link between your initial ideas of what is femininity?' and your latest findings... a very different type of fluidity to these pieces of bark and your initial flowy rings.. seems you are moving nicely along your path of discovery ! well done..
