Let me tell ya: I am reading! (as disturbing as that may be…) On my travels around blogland I find THE most amazing people and I want to share some of my “discoveries” with you. Give you a chance to get to know them better. Meet amazing artists on their own turf, in their own words!
I give you:
Feature Friday! *artful echo*
For this very first and introductory Friday I found Sarah Louisa Whittle. Embroidery Artist! I “stumbled” upon her through Twitter and just can’t get enough of those beautiful embroidered Postcards she makes!
Here is one of my faves:
Without further ado, here she is in her own words:
I decided to develop this idea further by taking modern photographs I had taken of local scenes and using Photoshop to turn them into a sepia colour, then printing them onto fabric specially for an inkjet printer. Once printed I bond them to a backing fabric and tint the image with hand embroidery, using various stitches.
Thank you so much Sarah! (isn’t that bird just darling???)
I sincerely hope you stop by her blog or website when you have time! Tell her I sent you! And drool over her wonderful art!
If you would like to be one of my “Feature Friday” guests, please send me an email with a link or some images I can review. I would be thrilled to consider your Art!
