How to make a Klimt inspired piece without it looking like a copy? Not sure I have succeeded but I had a lot of fun trying. I have taken every piece of material in my stash (in all senses of the word) that has gold and silver in and used them - cotton fabric, plastic, metal mesh and sheet, foiling, lame, sheers - you name it. Add to that buttons and crystals.
Background is a hand dye from Frieda Anderson which I have screened printed. Shapes fused in place and machine stitched. Satin stitch around the edge.
Looking forward to the next artist.
