This beautifully finished, imaginative, one of a kind bird and butterfly collage is created on a velvet base with silk paints, organza, metallic foils and stitch. Layers of colour have been built up then distressed to create a 'shabby chic' appearance, similar to a Victorian tapestry. It has been delicately machine embroidered and hand embroidered to add an array of colour, texture, decoration and detail. The collage is sold unframed and is made to popular dimensions ensuring a frame can easily be purchased off the shelf. The finished size is 41 x 32 cm (16 x 12.5")
I met a textile artist at a stitching show who was interested in creating a 'distressed' look to her work. It reminded me of Victorian tapestries. I researched a few techniques and this is the result. I always love creating birds and butterflies and this seemed like a perfect match for this piece.
