Monkey Mind Part Two

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Owing to on-going encouragement from a very good artist friend, Michele Jackson I decided to take my previously blogged about digital collage here into the 'dimensional realm.'







On Monday evening I ink-jet printed it onto cloth and the following photographs capture the various 'surface elements' I added.  There are layers and layers of old doilies, many hand dyed by  Lorraine Stobie, 






vintage tatting from Marsha Jorgensen






laces  from Hermine Koster 









and Viola Ertmann







and other bits and pieces of textiles and vintage doilies I've collected at flea markets and antique sales over the past several years, some tea dyed while others, just as I found them.








Thank you to all of my on-line art friends I've mentioned above,  for reminding me again of your generousities!

It's so very beautiful, Trudi! I don't know how you find the time to work in such meticulous detail. Nothing makes my heart sing like seeing you work in a way I know you love to.

Your very welcome Trudi and THANK YOU for your friendship. You turned it in good use and I think you made an awesome artwork with all those bits and pieces. love it.

Hi Trudi! I haven't been here in a while! I LOVE this piece, and as always love your art. This piece has so many different textures and I love that you have some vintage tatting on there as well. I recently took a class on tatting and have learned the basics. It seems like such a lost art, and I hope I can keep improving with practice! Happy day to you. :-)

I'm always so delighted when friends "use" what I've sent! A beautiful transition from digital to fabric - well done! On another note, your blog photos are beautiful....

Trudi, you are so talented in multiple media.
I have your prints hanging on my "wall of fame'. I would love to send a pic but my hallway is so narrow I cannot get my camera to focus. They do look wonderful though.

Trudi, this is absolutely one of the loveliest pieces you've done. I think it's the soft pastel tones. It's very calming. Gorgeous.
