Old Army Blanket and Collage.

Friday, April 21st, 2017

Still working on small textile collages.

 

 

I found an old army blanket from my childhood and couldn’t resist  it’s raggedy worn, loveliness and further rusted it. Leaving it in the elements outside for a few weeks.

 

 

It can take ages moving pieces around to get the right composition.

 

 

then sometimes it just happens straight away.

 

 

 

Adding more marks…

 

The good thing about using a stretched canvas as a base, I can stitch right into it.

Just like using a embroidery hoop.

 

3 New Collages using fragments.

100 yr old cotton textile fragments, vintage found objects, oil pigments,vintage card, linen thread, linen cloth.

 

 

The pieces of cloth are extremely fragile so each piece

 

 

needs to be reinforced and sealed and stitched into very carefully
