The December theme was Architecture. /definitions…
- the art or practice of designing and constructing buildings.
- the style in which a building is designed or constructed, especially with regard to a specific period, place, or culture.
- the complex or carefully designed structure of something.
That was a difficult them for me because my work is more organic. I chose door number three: the complex designed structure of something…an art quilt.
This was constructed by first strip piecing hand painted and hand dyed scraps for the background. Then I added scraps from my Seashore themed artist trading cards from this month. Those were positioned on the background and wonky machine stitching holds it all together. I have a Styrofoam block I made and I printed this all over in black for depth. A few wonky hand stitches to go with my commitment to adding slow stitching to my work and I called it done.
