Oooo, Stitched digitally printed textile, © Karen Thiessen 2010
Trained as a textile artist, I now work in collage and textiles, sometimes together, sometimes separately. Oooo began as a paper collage in my sketchbook. I scanned it, cleaned it up in Photoshop, and digitally printed it onto a special fabric, that I then hand-stitched. This piece is for the Textile Museum of Canada's Shadow Box Event 2011. This is the ninth shadow box that I've contributed and Oooo rates in my favourite top three. Check out the TMC website to view the rest of the shadow boxes.
