Last week I had fun taking the glass out of a double sided ready made photo frame and adding grape vine tendrils painted with black pigment ink, some linen thread and glass beads with the intention of entering this crow feather print into a local art show but part of the requirements are that it needs to be hung on a wall… so yesterday morning I wove the tendrils together and then messed around with the edges ruining 3 prints in the process (blamed it on the New Moon being Void of Course) & finally got it to work, am still in two minds as to whether I want it to hang on a wall as I like the look of the back!

    So beautiful this frame you made for the feather Mo !!!

  2. i like the back too….it’s really stunning. the frame would even be beautiful if there were just
    empty space in it. like no glass or anything, just space….

      yes i really like the wildness of the tendrils in relation to the plain blackness of the frame… there is room to explore, have lots more tendrils and those photo frames are ridiculously cheap, may keep it in house til the crow show in mid 2016

    I am ashamed, I haven’t been on your blog for ages and it will take me ages to catch up… so many awesome and magic stuff to explore! Thanks for your nice comment on my blog! 🙂

    Delicious contrasts! Black and white; the spiraling vine and the straight edges. Magic!

    Beautiful Mo, I love everything you do. ox

    Yes, beautiful! Gosh, isn’t black paint wonderful! The tendrils are magic. Hmm… maybe it is too fragile for an exhibition that you don’t have complete control of.

    If it needs to go on the wall, can it somehow be a bit distant from the wall, so you get those lovely shadows of the tendrils behind the crow feather …I love it
