A little something from my other life.
If you’ve been following me for a while you will know that I am a big fan of cyanotype prints to record objects from journeys or loved ones. This has kind of mushroomed over the years where other people get involved and give me things or ask for their loved ones possessions to be documented in this way. Last year a lovely lady I follow on instagram asked me if I might be interested in finding a home for some items that used to belong to her grandmother. These included lace, collars, gloves and handkerchiefs.
Of course I was delighted and made some prints straight away from the objects. But it has taken me until now to find the time to make them into something for her to keep as a memory of her gran. I try to also make something similar to keep so I remember the story too. I love collecting stories! Below are some of the initial prints.
And finally these are the two little books…
