Make quilt. Take picture of quilt. Print, then stitch picture of quilt to folded pages of a book.* Make a color xerox. Tape color xerox to window on top of Nat’l Geographic photo of a robed figure. Take another picture. Voila.
Next, use color xerox cut outs of a previously constructed quilt (hearts) and stitch them onto paper with a magazine waterfall, using a color xerox of handmade paper for the bottom edge.
Photo with ‘neutral light’ (above) and then let shadows play into design, creating two variations.
(This is a test regarding crisp posted images).
I love the shadows and the watery realm in the background. I also am enamored with photographed stitching bumping along with actual stitching. And although the THOUGHT of a heart casting a shadow somewhat troubles me, the image does not.
Do any other fiber artists out there like to play with paper reproductions of their fiber work?

Off to make a smoothie for D’s first day of school… LATE START is a great idea for teenagers!
these look great, Great!! I just love the light and shadows; I’ll have to reread what you did, and see if maybe I can do something like this as well – have to buy a new printer first –
I also love to make color xeroxes of quilts… laying the cloth right on the glass… but the rest is just allowing shadows to insert themselves.
i’ve never done that but i love how that first image turned out.
me too, and there’s something MORE ghostly about the fact that the image only exists digitally
