Here's a mini-series of stitcheries and photo transfers I just finished. The photos were given to me by my neighbour, who was about to throw them out, not knowing who anyone was in the pictures. In my ongoing effort to clean out, declutter, and use up all the supplies and stashes of stuff in my studio, I put the pictures together with some fabric I had on hand. I find that the compositions are fine as they are but I am tempted to push the envelope and see where it leads me. Most anyone can stitch together themed fabric scraps and print out some photo transfers to produce a satisfying craft project, but how does one turn craft into art and make it a more personal expression? I feel a whole lot of collage and paint coming on!
On the other hand, maybe I should just matt them and frame them and leave well enough alone?
