“Crumpled, pleated, and painted, ordinary paper becomes haute couture in the hands of the Belgian artist Isabelle de Borchgrave.”
“By reconstructing dresses from key periods in fashion history, Prêt-à-Papier presents a range of styles from the late 17th to the early 20th century. Isabelle de Borchgrave deftly crafts a world of splendor in trompe l’oeil. Cutting, gluing, and painting with imagination and exceptional mastery, she creates the illusion of lace, brocade, delicate silk, and sumptuous embroidery.”
If you are new to my blog you probably don’t know, yet, how much I love taking pictures of embroidery art…and my work in progress. Something I have always loved about tumblr, instagram, twitter, etc is how you can watch an artist’s work grow through the process…beginning to end sometimes.
I have been awake since 4a, sewing &watching Twin Peaks…countless cups of coffee (and orange juice as the day churns on).
I am also looking forward to sharing some new endeavors with all of you, my loves. The last few months of 2012 feel just as good as the first…if not better.
