Landscape of Love
Leslie & Odin's embroidered heirloom is based on the invitation to their wedding, which they designed and printed themselves. A map of their wedding location on the Bruce Peninsula in Ontario, Canada, formed the basis for the design along with a personalized "compass" with their initials. The map was stenciled onto the linen using textile paint, with a tiny embroidered red heart marking the exact spot of their ceremony.
The embroidery was done using silk and cotton threads on white linen, with textile paint for the map. Stitches used were: raised cup, split stitch, backstitch, padded satin, stem, and brick stitch. The finished piece was laced onto acid-free board and fitted into a 10" h x 8" w white frame.
