And it's been a good start to 2016 as I've already managed to slip back into my alter ego Victorian mood and create a couple of collage pieces. I've spent the last couple of years concentrating on other textile work and studies. Please do pop over to therosecottagestudio.co.uk for a look at what else I've been up to, where you can read and follow my other blog.
Here are a few photos of my works in progress:
you can see that the vintage lace is complete with original tea stains, which of course won't wash out but I think it adds to the story. I'll probably add more hand stitch and then decide whether to mount them in frames or do something else with them, maybe make them into little books.
Each piece is 12"x8"
That's all for now! As always I'd love to receive any comments.
