Pretty in Pink

For my birthday I got a new sewing machine which allows me to do free hand embroidery, so I thought I’d try it out with this cosmetics advert from an old French magazine. The stitching doesn’t really follow a specific pattern, apart from the few flowers I did, but it creates texture and it adds something to this old and forgotten image. I held the finished piece to the window which allows the light to shine through the pin holes and it also reveals the text on the other side. I think overall it creates a delicate artwork, which reflects the style of the image. (I promise there will be another artist post soon, I’ve been so busy lately!)
