"timekeeper"



While traveling in the UK last month, I had the opportunity to see some fabulous work. One artist in particular caught my eye and her work was the inspiration for this piece.

The work entitled "timekeeper" is made from paper ephemeral I purchased while I was in London, the background is made from an aviators map, paint and embellishments.

Sewing a dress from paper proved to be quite challenging, unlike fabric, the paper would tear easily. To help prevent this I ironed fusible webbing to the back of the paper.

Tell me your thoughts on this piece. And if anyone is interested I will be happy to post a step by step tutorial.
