Key to Success



The Key to Success!
This piece is 5" x 4", including the box like frame. It is a scrap of embroidery coated with house paint, bleach, and sepia ink onto which a handmade tag, key, and stitching was added. This was stitched to an embellished background, wool rovings worked into wool from the reverse. The plexi is held in place by gild headed brads. The back includes a recessed collage.
Sucess!

These are wonderful and speak to my heart. How often do the keys to happiness and success feel like they are lost in the ancient of days.

Treasure.

Susan, this is wonderful, I spend my finishing time on a piece trying to cover up the back of the frame, it never occurred to me that was a perfect place for a little more art. Super Idea!!!!
