Just finished this lovely work using one of my favorite quotes.
Lots of hand sewn details...
mother of pearl buttons, found objects, rusty elements,
antiqued lace, abaca paper and birds nest paper...
just to name a few.
This piece was inspired by some of the techniques I learned
at Collage Camp from KC Willis.
For the photographs I used TAP (transfer artist paper)
from Lesley Riley. I was a little skeptical a first as I have always
printed my images directly on fabric but I was pleasantly
surprised with the results.
The images transferred beautifully and it was a snap to use!
stitches on my new Husqvarna! It amazes me what
a sewing machine can do...
especially since my old machine only had a couple basic stitches.
