my art, my inspiration
When I was first given my final art brief, I knew that I wanted to create a fine art/textile piece inspired by the Quilts 1700-2010 exhibition at the V&A please do visit if you haven't already!), so I photocopy transferred the postcard onto calico, which I had previously stained with coffee to recreate a wonderful discoloured, aged effect. I attached a rusty button I bought for a penny in my local charity shop, then I handstitched it onto a plain piece of calico. I photocopy transferred many of the other letters and photographs, but this one definately came out the best. It was meant to just be a sample to keep in my sketchbook, but I loved it so much I ended up using it in my final piece. I hope you all understand my work as sometimes I find it rather hard to explain and describe things. Love, Jazzabelle. EDIT: Blogger kept messing up with my picture layout, so I have had to edit the top the pictures together, unfortunately they are a lot smaller - sorry!
