Norman Window

Been remiss at not posting recently but life has a way of catching up with one doesn't it?! I am very focussed this week on getting my pieces for the Textile 21 Norton Priory exhibition finished
This is almost at the finished stage. I have been to organise a frame which should be ready on Saturday.
I have posted two pictures the first without flash and the second one with flash. I would say that the colour is some way between the two. The first one shows the navy background and how the reclaimed lace (with soldering iron) shows up. I lightened the window recess area and thankfully it worked!

See pictures on previous post for detail of the distressed edges. There is a Norman window at the Priory and the theme was 'Outside In' so it was crying out to be represented in some way. I have been very pleased with the way the Lutradur behaved it has been coated with many different layers of paint, acrylic and interferance and inks etc. It was a dream to solder and to sew.

Hi Margaret
I really like this. Its works well.
I've just started a blog by the way..it takes ages doesn't it?
Can you tell me an easy way to find your blog again without having to go to your flickr profile?
I'm going to put some links on my blog when I find out how to.
