It's all L
This is another picture from the 'Layers' collection and so guess what - it is made up of layers. The background fabric has been screen printed with my own design using a thermofax screen. The labrynth is painted fabric which I cut out & moved to applique onto the background - big mistake, it ended up in a crumpled heap & took ages to unravel. The tree, leaves & bird are also painted fabric. The lace, lamp and letter are inkjet prints on lutradur, the lace & lamp were made 'holey' with a soldering iron. These items were appliqued onto the background. Freehand machine embroidery was used for the other items. Wrapped around a canvas frame 61x61cm. It is called 'It's all L' because there are 28 items beginning with the letter L. Can you find them all?
