Black Linen/White Marks

Work in Progress

A peek at what I'm working on. A black linen blouse from the thrift store was begging for my marks. I think I will continue down the back.
I'm going to do a series of these blouses.

The Silhouette is a paper cutout that the infamous Wallie Spatz made. I think I was 9 years old at the time.


  1. I love the simplicity and beauty of this, and the sharp contrast. Lovely, Christine.

  2. Thank you Elaine.It's always good to get feedback, I appreciate yours.

  3. This would make a great series. Carry on! I think we have a Willie Spatz of everyone in our family. Mom and Dad too.

  4. The contrast is really interesting, and somehow very different from the red marks, which I also love. Carry on : )

  5. it's like a drawing... surreptitiously done on someone's back
    with a fine piece of chalk
    whilst they were dreaming

    would you mind if i borrowed the top image
    and pasted it in
    found stitched dyed
    with a link to you?

  6. i've come over from found stitched dyed, your marks are beautiful and remind me of prehistoric marks made on stone. And no wonder they do, i've just now spotted Dorothy Napangardi's pic. k.

  7. Kaite, thank you for your comments. wasn't aware of D. Napangardi's work until after I started my mark making. I was thrilled to find her images!

  8. Beautiful -- it almost has a voice … like a whisper!


I always enjoy reading comments!
