This piece went to its new home yesterday. Thought I'd give it another moment in the spotlight, because actually I've had so very little time with it. I finished it and the very next week someone wanted to buy it. It then went off on display at a couple of venues, been gone since May, came back to me yesterday and immediately transferred to its new owner, barely a backward glance!!! In its finished state its probably been in my hands only two weeks.
Its small - 6" x 8" or so. Background is 180gsm cartridge paper, with Inktense colour, which I blended by using Gesso, not water., to give a chalky appearance. Machine stitched grid. On the points of the grid are tiny tiny flat sequins with a bead.....
Heart shaped hole cut out of centre and filled with another heart. Painted lutradur, covered in hand stitching. Brass rings filled with beads, and heart buttons, and a sprinkling of more sequins.
I wonder if I will ever finish and sell another piece so quickly!
