ATC 111...Trade Being Arranged!
(Click on image to enlarge.)
This ATC was created after slicing up an older work called Feminine Beauty. It had been a collage of late 19th century engravings (mostly fans and jewelry) on citron colored linen with painted Wonder Under (Bond-a-Web), bits of lace and millinery net, and metallic foiling. It was heavily hand stitched, beaded, and included couched on pieces of costume jewelry and buttons.
The back is a piece of purple wool, signed and dated in free motion machine embroidery.
I'm thrilled to be trading with Sandra who blogs here. Sandra blogged about our trade here. Sandra is also a quilt appraiser who blogs about this process here.
