Park Street

Here are some pictures of my card designs being made for ‘Art in Action’ 2016.

My tendency for the unusual in embroidery themes is happening again: damaged parts of shops and cafes that are alive and bustling on Park Street in Bristol. I think my son was slightly unsure when I started kneeling on the ground to take photographs of damaged wood and brickwork and then suggested that the images would be stitched and used for cards designs.

The only problem I now have is the time that it takes to make each image – possibly over an hour for each one. Are they too expensive for small gift cards? Perhaps I could mount on  pieces of white card and then people can choose wether to give as a gift or place in frame. More images to follow.
