experiment



Just trying a few options with paper/embroidery/beading etc to see what I like. This is an early version of an idea I've had. Sorry the light isn't spectacular, the muslin is actually a very clean white. I like the shape of the seed head but i think i would prefer it in one colour maybe even a very dark brown with clear crystals for the little seeds. The wire is, of course a variation of a Rebecca Sower idea (did i mention before how much I really, really like her work?). The music paper under the muslin I could also work with more. Plus adding calico is always a must (words maybe?)

Anyway stay tuned for more stuff as I head in the direction that is currently calling me.
