Responding to a compliment by a dear friend who said she loved my photography and I should concentrate on it and leave the Zetti behind I decided to dedicate my Sketchbook and it's theme, If You Lived Here........ to Zettiland.
That's pretty much how it works with me. Suggest to me that I leave something I love, something that helped me escape out of many boxes, behind and I'm probably going to cling to it even harder.
Once that decision had been made the process started. The top picture is the almost finished cover for the Sketchbook. I will be recovering the moleskin with this fiber piece. It's fabric paper, covered with napkins, painted and machine stitched. The birdhouse is stamped muslin which has been painted.
The next picture is of a spread called Honeycomb Valley and it's a fiber landscape on muslin and the bee hives are more of the stamped, painted muslin.
The Leaping Zetti fish are fiber applied to a painted plastered surface on muslin. It has an interesting texture to it.
Zetti sailors is another painted, fiber piece.
I still need to add text to these. I'll be including pages with instruction on techniques used.
:)Bea Zetti allows my mind to play.
