Shadows it is!
to have them suspended over the background would br truely stunning , befitting your work, creating another layer of shadowing :-)
I love the idea of the shadows. Thank you for sharing the procedures, very interesting.
Hi, I am so appreciative of your comments. The organic material are cabbage leaves that have soaked in a glycerin solution for a couple of weeks so they are somewhat pliable. They have all those wonderful holes because they were eaten by cabbage moths when they were growing. Right now they're lightly stretched onto embroidery stretcher bars. I'm trying to figure out if I should display them in a way where the shadows show or just wrap them around acid-free board.
I'ld like to know how you finish these fabulous pieces, how do you display them?
I'm so enthralled with your work!
such an origional idea, amazed the leaves did not break when you stitched them
You blow me away girl I love your work. It is the best Hugs to you girl friend Elaine
