An interesting way to see your work in relation to how others see it. I was surprised at a couple of inclusions.
Instagram is such a great platform for capturing snapshots of your work. I use Instagram quite a bit in my work to:
- record works in progress
- record finished pieces
- to help me ‘see’ my work at a distance
- create a visual list take when shopping for materials
- send information to others
How do you use Instagram in your work?
I have created a series of blank greeting cards using some of my hand dyed fabrics, and embellishments collected over the years.
The note cards are a fun way to use some of my precious fabric pieces that are too small to stitch with (although some of my friends would not agree!)
Shells were collected from beach vacations. I purposely chose only shells that had a small hole, with the idea that I would stitch them onto some artwork in the future.
I love the beautiful and nuanced look of Oakshott Cottons. The warp and weft are woven with two different colours, you can see the turquoise and blue in the piece above. So much more interesting than just a solid!
A vintage linen napkin with a lovely finished edge in fuchsia is combined with cheesecloth and a heart. I call this one Twisted Heart!
Indigo paired with glass beads and ribbon to celebrate your accomplishments.
These blank mixed media note cards will be available soon in an upcoming holiday market.
