Stitching on Metal


Thought I would start cleaning up the art supplies that seem to love to be all over the house and found some pieces that I had packed away. Haven't done much sewing lately because I really would have to clean up just to get to the machine. But when I found this piece I thought I really should try and unearth a sewing machine. I loved to sew on metal shim. This piece has dyed tissue paper that has been stamped on, melted tyvek, metal shim that has been embossed and colored with alchohol ink stitched on to the base and machine embroidered Celtic pieces. Maybe tomorrow I really should plug in a sewing machine.

This is very beautiful! One of my goals is to get a sewing machine and teach myself how to sew. This is a very awe-inspiring piece!

Love your artwork! And as a side note, it's nice to read that someone else ends up with their art and supplies all over the house! LOL Sherry http://gotart4u.blogspot.com
