Here we have a paper envelope dated 1909. I have used the envelope as a canvas to embroider a summer garden.
Layers of net, lace and embroidery have been worked to create this colourful garden. Finished with teeny painted Bees. The text reads 'Summer border'.
The envelope is of interest, with the original recipient making pencil notations of mail received and sent.
An originally designed and worked mixed media piece, in celebration of our lovely gardens.
The artwork measures 12 x 9.5 cm. It is unframed, backed with cotton and signed and dated.
