I know two posts in one day is a bit much, but I wanted to put these photos up quickly to see if there’s any comment or response.
Footprints, baby ones, on a woman’s dress… as a sort of counterpoint to the adult handprints on children’s clothes. I haven’t decided where these prints should go yet, also, whether they should be footprints or shoe prints. Should I do a simple track across the dress, or should I overlap them in a sort of tramply manner?
So these tissue templates are supposed to help me decide. Whatever I decide will eventually be stitched in a similar way to the hands, small, repetitive, simple stitching. I need to decide quickly because if I want to do loads it’s going to take me weeks.
Don’t you find photos help, they sort of compress things into a small view, 2D… Somehow the brain finds it easier to process as an image, than a life size dress with life size feet on it?
