When I was approached to create a post on the theme of Deconstruction for the PaperArtsy blog I knew immediately that I would be utilising rusting powder to transform cotton fabric into something which, I hope, would resemble a piece of rich textile which has become timeworn, weathered over the decades.
As so often is the case with me, I start with a rough idea but it can take another direction if I happen to cast my eyes upon a particular item lying in my wee craft space. In this instance I spied a piece of leftover Tando chipboard, with a shape which all of a sudden found the pieces of the puzzle fitting into place and I knew I had the perfect Lynne Perrella stamp to work with, the design of the stamp echoing the shape of the Tando piece.
The theme was carried throughout with each element having a symbolism and significance to the piece as a whole. I so enjoyed working on this piece for PaperArtsy. This is a little snippet.If I haven’t visited your blogs or chatted for a while then know it is because the enforced time away from all continues and can only hope that it isn’t too long before I am able to catch-up with all of you. Know how much I appreciate your visits and if you happen to be curious about my PaperArtsy blog post then that is wonderful especially as it was such an enjoyable process creating this for their Deconstruction theme.
