Hemet Stock Farm in Pastel - Mixed Media and Photo Fabric Collage

I created a wall hanging of the Hemet Stock Farm for our Rineyville, KY cottage. The photograph is of the old Hemet Stock Farm gate that I took a few years ago, and I printed it on white cotton. I love the muted greens and bird motif of the old drapery sample that I used for the background. Various fabric scraps that I coffee dyed are layered behind the stock farm picture. Additional embellishments include old buttons and antique lace. The piece measures approximately 16" 21" excluding the wooden hanger. The wooden hanger is a piece from the old fence that surrounds the stock farm. I was Lucky enough one day to happen by when workers were replacing parts of the fence, and they let me take some of the old pieces. You can see more of the Stock Farm series here.
