Unn the Deepminded
I have been watching a tv programme about the Icelandic sagas and have been reading one called The Laxdaela saga which is the fascinating tale of a woman named Unn the deepminded...what an excellent description for a strong woman character. I have downloaded it and am reading it through wattpad which I highly recommend for your mobile as its free! Back to my piece I have stamped a lovely scrollswork image onto tissue then sewed this onto various fabric scraps including dyed bandage, dyed dryer sheets etc. I have been playing around with textures hence the twig, old button and lace..the background is off an old rusty umbrella which I found. Be sure to check out the scrollswork site as its closing down soon and now everything is 80% off. Over at UK Stampers there is a vintage choice competition so have entered this piece into that and which ends today.
