Embroidered Book Page / Collage, Drawing and Hand Stitching on Paper / Page from a Lost Diary

Small, intimate with delicate hand-stitching, this is another in a series of book pages....a theme to which I return again and again. The handwriting in this lost diary is illegible, but then, diaries are quite private places and it's best we don't intrude. The writing is a mystery, but we can still appreciate the time someone took to jot their notes and put their reflections down on paper.

This piece is made on a piece of Japanese paper that has been coated with beeswax. It is supported with an unwaxed paper, held by the hand embroidery that creates the written text. Fragments of one my earlier drawings in ink (also dipped in beeswax) are hand stitched to the paper.

The soft, warm color is reminiscent of a worn book page and is accented by the tiny red seed drawing fragments.

Artwork measures 6"h x 9 1/2"w and will come carefully packaged. Frame or display as you desire. Please remember the beeswax makes the work quite delicate...handle with care and keep away from direct sources of heat!

Thanks for browsing MissouriBendStudio! Feel free to contact me with questions or just to say hello!

This is just a beautiful piece - I am in awe of Patti's skill in producing artwork of such quality. Truly unique and inspirational - photos sadly can never portray the beauty of the art which is why I was so happy to receive this piece! Thank you so much - arrived quickly and packaged perfectly. I will continue to admire this piece and Patti's work! :)
