A new piece using vintage photos from those I've collected from flea and vintage markets and one to two bought online..
I'm using the printable poplin that you can put through an ink jet, so inventive!
A mixture of machine and hand embroidery/stitching.
I wanted to find a way to use these photos as I've hardly used any in my artwork
The text in this piece comes from a land document that dates from the 17c I bought a while ago to use in the Bloodlines exhibition. It's a huge piece with the original wax stamp still mostly intact.
Amazing, beautiful handwriting and the ink has faded to a soft mossy colour.
I love handwriting, what with the internet and texting these days I do feel peoples handwriting has suffered from lack of use.
It's a dark Sunday morning and you can feel the season begin to change, a nip in the air, but the leaves are still green and the plumbs are just tinged pink with promise.
