A beautiful textile and appliqued picture of the sea, sky, and beach, richly textured with layers of beautiful fabrics. This piece is made from a combination of applique, and freemotion machine embroidery. It includes a background that has been built up using cottons, linens, hessian, and scrims, and perfectly reflects moving waves and a sunny sky.T he text is printed to calico before being attached to the picture and simply says "Smell the sea and feel the sky, let your soul and spirit fly!”. Small French knots have been hand sewn to finish, and pieces of antique lace added too. Much of the embellishment on this piece is recycled from old clothing, fabric scraps and antique lace/ linen.
The finished piece measures 36 x 36cm, with the inner mount in antique white and measuring 20 x 20cm. It comes ready framed with a white driftwood wooden frame, ready to hang on a wall. As this piece is created by freemotion embroidery and applique, the odd frayed edge is deliberate and adds to the quirkiness
