Flower Picking Girls-Mixed Media Framed Artwork
Embroidery and mixed media often ends in creating something truly unique. The series of flower picking girls started with Ubuntu (make your own kits are still available, but all finished artwork had sold out) and here's the next member of the family.
How 'Provence' was made:
The base is a pure linen fabric, embroidered with DMC thread. The skirt is a vintage cotton piece, the apron's Yorkshire tweed. Her shawl has been designed with a triangle of antique French lace. The frame is decorated with dried lavender, dried rose buds and paper flowers as well as a cotton net. A truly unique gift for any occasion.
How 'Rosalynne' was made:
The base is a vintage Sanderson linen mix sampler, embroidered with DMC cotton thread. The skirt is made of a piece of vintage cotton fabric that's used to be a baby shirt. The apron is Harris Tweed, embellished with an embroidered pocket and a pair of miniature, brass coloured flower cutting scissors. The shirt is made of a vintage Calico piece and the hat is cut out from a vintage cushion cover. The frame is hand painted and decorated with paper flowers. A truly unique gift for any occasion.
