Same again this morning. I think the problem was that I wanted to do something completely new and go down a new direction. This is very difficult when you have so many influences....the net provides such a wealth of inspiration that sometimes I think I have gobsmackoverload. Anyway, this afternoon I forced myself to start something and here we are, many hours later. (All in between trying to dry washing, mopping floors from muddy dogs etc. the usual moans, you know)!
This was the second try with the photos, even though the sun was out, somehow the density of light has gone.
So a little explanation of what I did..... Lovely aged letter 1833, collaged a wax paper tree, ironed on vintage embroidery transfer, added old hanky silk and liberty lawn and then a drawing on tracing paper, collaged onto muslin and finished with embroidery. It took ages but I'm really pleased with it. I want to start pushing the boundaries a bit, as it is so easy to reproduce the same kind of work. My comfort zone is very cozy, you know.
