Delicate flowers float across the page in this two-sided mixed media piece created to resemble a page lifted from a book....The Book of Floating Flowers! The front and back are separate, yet interact with one another as the embroidery on one side becomes a feature on the back. Intuitive, whimsical and charming, Page From The Book of Floating Flowers recalls the gentle breeze that allows the soft pink and yellow blossoms to float, as if on air!

This piece was made with delicate layers of acrylic paint and drawing marks on handmade paper. Later water soluble crayons created the flowers and added further patches of color here and there, after which the page was dipped in beeswax. The beeswax enriches the surface and color, as well as making the piece more sturdy so it can be displayed free standing. Final details were added with the tiny stitches and beads that accent the flowers. A length of waxed linen thread runs down the gutter in a pamphlet stitch to echo the page of a book.

Page From The Book of Floating Flowers measures approximately 6"h x 7 1/2" w and will come carefully packaged, ready for you to display or frame as you desire. Beeswax makes the work delicate, so best to keep away from extreme heat and out of the direct summer sun!

Thank you so much for browsing MissouriBendStudio...enjoy!
