Pin-up Inspiration


Things have been a little quiet around here, sorry lovelies! I have been working on my pin-up embroideries like a mad woman that are going to be in a group show (with my 3 friends) in May. I don't have all of the details yet, but it's a one night only pop up show and I'm super excited!!!!!! Also, I just started the most epic embroidery project of my life and it's a surprise ;) I don't know how I'm going to finish everything but I'm going to make it happen!

Here is some pin-up inspiration that has been keeping me going...

This is the first art show that I am a part of and I'm nervous and excited at the same time! I have no idea how I'm going to display my embroideries...but I want to do something other than display them in hoops or frames.... ANY IDEAS?! I would love to hear ;)

Wow Katy, these are great pics. I've been missing you! Can't wait to see your WIPs. (That sounds so wrong...).

I can't wait to see your WIP either. I love the pinup girl on the river or walking over the river.

When I'm putting my work in a gallery I often stretch it over a square of MDF and simply staple it into the back. I wrap it with a layer of thin cotton batting first so the corners are slightly rounded. I don't think that's sassy enough for your work, but maybe it will lead you to something cool?
