Woven Heart

Well I did sit here all day and make that woven heart from the post below.It has Fantasy Film and Angelina Film woven in several layers to make the heart and background plus Opals.Also there is Angelina hot fix fibres under the house and around the heart,a faux lead light window at front of the house,hand sewn on beads, and words at edges imprinted using metal stamps and a hammer.It's amazingly shimmery and glistens in the light.I was aiming for a woven heart to represent the interwoven united hearts of all Australians who have reached out from all the corners of our country to those devastated and those souls lost by the Feb 7 bush fires in Victorian.They call that day Black Saturday now.


Here is the faux glass window/door closed and a closer image of some of the detail on the front window

The woven heart from front before I stuck it down

Beautiful work- and beautiful sentiments.

Your work always shows your soul.
I love the way you work from your heart with such thoughtfulness and compassion.

These pictures don't do this justice I'm sure! Anything that has that much shimmer-producing material in it must surely glisten!!! Wonderful as always Annette!

Annette, I am overwhelmed by your piece. The recent tragedies in your country are devastating. I am so glad you found an outlet for some of those feelings. This is a beautiful piece.

That's so beautiful Annette, but it made me feel all spooked when I saw the back of the heart before you stuck it down. It glowed at me...
I think you have represented your fellow-countrymen admirably with this piece and I hope someone sees it and writes about it (IYSWIM).
Bravo lady!

Annette, I just love art that has deep meaning and portrays an actually part of history. This piece has depth and I love how the person peeps out from beneathe it all. Is that you or one of the survivors? Eithers way it's thought provocking and very unique. Love that it's a glass house and heart at the same time too! A true artist shows the sufferrings of her time and place so keep on arting! Sanna
