‘The Thread that binds us.’
When this title was given three months ago, ‘the thread that binds us’ jumped into my head. It ruminated there until ten days ago – my wedding anniversary. ‘Marriage – the thread that binds us’ – and away I went!
I painted a 12” square canvas board using a few drops of walnut ink mixed with gesso. On top of that I placed a sheet of hand made textured paper. Image transfer techniques were used to transfer my wedding photos as well as those of family members. I finally embellished it with a piece of nylon ribbon and thread.
I loved the topic and my husband loved his anniversary gift.
