oops, I pressed enter by accident and it posted....anywho, they are all vandyke prints onto tea towels and napkins except for the blue one, that's a cyanotype.

They're van dyke prints. You just coat the fabric with them...or really soak it because of course when you coat it with a brush it goes right through the fabric. And the antique room at my school has an exposing unit that measures with light units so that you can get the exposure to the right length much more precisely than just sticking it out in the sun or putting it under regular ultra violet lights....although once you've done it long enough you can usually tell by the color of the emulsion if it's ready or not but who wants all that cancer? I haven't really hung any of these ones yet. I did hang this one http://i49.photobucket.com/albums/f278/iheartyourbrains/IMG_5533.jpg and I just pinned it to the wall and really liked the way it looked so if I hung them I would just probably pin them there, maybe even with actual pins for sewing and not thumb tacks.

O.k., I did that project, so here's a few of the ones I've done so far:

yeah, not like serial killer dark. I guess I just don't see at as dark personally, but that's probably because I'm a sick bitch who eats babies.

what is all this talk about "dark" imagery? Nothing of yours is really even dark.

....i'm pretty sure i would hate everything about pregnancy and birthing and then infancy....i'm pretty keen on the idea of adoption though...and plus, i hit the jackpot for someone like me, my spouse just happens to be sterile, yaayyy for me and he thinks its a blessing too.

i just hope i can actually pull it off on time...and well....I only have like 3 or 4 weeks until it's due and i haven't started and I have 3 other classes. And I have to hope that I brought my embroidery kit, because I haven't actually even had time to do any since last winter.....maybe when i was packing I was like, "I won't have time for this" and then packed it away into storage. Oh no, I didn't even actually think of that possibility until just now, I'm going to look in all my drawers...all 3 of them, as soon as i finish this. Aaaannnd you'd have to wait until long after christmas, because I've got to wait till I have enough money for a tattoo. They's expensive, me living off student loans. Actually I bet I did bring my embroidery kit, because i think I was hoping to do an illustration project with it.

Um, this is kind of random too...but I've been thinking and thinking of a tattoo, I have a bunch of ones I want, but i was trying to think of what kind of design I would want for an animal, and one of the animals I want is a deer and I just remembered your deer with blood and altar like flower halo thing...and it's basically one of my favorite things ever...i actually do look at it a lot. I've had it bookmarked and on my iphoto since I've had my computer...so would you be really weirded out if I got a tattoo of it, or based on it, or would you not care, or would you think it's awesome? It's not like a careless thing, and I would really love it.

i love you. In a strange world where women could impregnate women (although maybe that will happen someday, i bet it will, science is craaazzzy and awesome) would you have my babies? No? O.k., good, i don't want any anyway....oh wait, no, I just don't want babies because I don't want to pregnant...so would you have my babies? I guess that would be an extreme measure to express my appreciation of your work, huh?
I've actually been trying to figure out a way to incorporate embroidery with photos, well with photos of taxidermied animals because I've been printing my pinhole photos of animals onto muslin and I've been drawing on regular photos in photoshop, and thought it would be a perfect combination. So I just have to figure out what exactly I want to embroider, because I really like the way the photos on muslin have turned out and I love to embroider and I love to draw on photos and I'm a photo major. So i don't know, I guess it's kind of close to the direction you've moved in as well.
