Shawoman Mask

shawoman mask s

This is a large stitched collage mask I did last year.  Embroidering on paper is not as easy to control as embroidering on fabric, and I like the somewhat random feel of the stitches.  Also stitching a collage together is much more time consuming than using glue, but it definitely gives an extra dimension to the piece.

In the close up, you can really see how the embroidery works to both anchor the paper and give texture.

    For some reason I can leave comments from the office computer but not the iPads. Go figure. Anyway, this one is inspiring me to try doing some stitching, been thinking about it for a while. Maybe put some of my grandpa’s fabric on a frame and sew stuff to it. It really is true that creativity breeds creativity.
