I’ve just spent a very enjoyable 4 hours on an Annie Sloan Painting course…

I do not think that any piece of furniture will now be safe from painting, distressing, waxing or gilding!

Project Jeanne

I’m currently working on a photography project that is totally different from my normal night and architectural images.  It is based on a kimono that originally belonged to my great grandmother, and was eventually given to me by my grandmother, Jeanne Johnstone Wilson.  The kimono is from China (circa 1910/20s – possibly earlier) and is made from raw silk and I’ve had it made into a dress, top and some lovely wall pictures.  But the fabric is so delicate and when my Grandmother passed away in 2012, I wanted to ensure that the fabric and its history was preserved.

Hence Project Jeanne! I am in the testing phases of the project but below are a couple of images to show what I am up to.
