20 Feb

P1080343

This weeks production: embellished photograph. Mount is made from the ladies wedding dress – it had been in the attic for 40 years and she wanted something making from it that she could see  every day. 1970’s polyester lace is extremely slippy to work with, especially when backed with nylon / polyester! May need to tweak the mount some more.

Week 6: 6th Feb to 11th Feb 2013
