Beautiful Dress Print - A Garment Of Praise Isaiah 61v3
This 5x7 Print of an original textile piece depicts the perfect scene to experience the truth of Isaiah 61 v 3. It would make an excellent birthday or house war
This 5 x 7 print is from an original textile embroidery piece. This was inspired by Isaiah 61 v 3 "... a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair."
What does a "Garment of Praise" look like? To me it is the outfit you wear when you are your most confident, most yourself, not inhibited by the past, by shame or despair, but the outfit you wear when you know you are loved, clothed in His righteousness and truly free.
A variety of fabrics were used to show an everyday dress. The intricate detail of the scene was crafted through a mixture of hand machine embroidery and hand embroidery.
The image is printed on fine art card. The image fits nicely in a standard 5x7 frame.
The print comes in a cellophane bag with firm backing board and a description of the meaning behind the print. Item will be shipped in a protective envelope.
Meet the Maker
Using antique fabrics and lace, I use my needle as my brush and fabrics as my paint to capture the word of God in the everyday, creating unique Christian textile art.
As a child, growing up in Devon, I loved nothing more than spending hours with boxes, glue, tape and whatever I could get my hands on, to make and create a new project... Later as a primary school teacher I was always using my creativity in the classroom. It wasn't until I became pregnant with my first son that a friend taught me how to use a sewing machine to make textile art for the nursery. Suddenly I was hooked on freestyle machine embroidery.
We spent nine years in London where my husband served as Vicar of a church in South West London. During that time I started making textile art pieces for friends as presents for birthdays or when people were going through hard times. It became a practical way of using my hands in prayer for them. As I sewed I was praying in God's hope and comfort - trusting that I was bringing God's word to life in their situation.
My hope is that the embroidery art cards and Scripture prints that I create will give people a fresh perspective on God's Word and how He meets us in the situations we are in, through the everyday objects and scenarios of life.
