Just the Beginnings

Just the Beginnings

Do not fall in love, this is just the 2nd or 3rd layer in what will have 6 or 7 layers. Someone asked me why I include the pattern pieces’ words which will most likely be completely obscured in the finished product. My answer: My mother was a water colorist, a graphic illustrator and a seamstress, I grew up surrounded by paints, ink wells, and pattern pieces, when I include a snippet of tissue with a fragment of words from one of these old patterns, I am including my mother in my creative process.
