January Glossy

I am starting this monthly project with the January issue of Vogue.

January US Vogue

A challenge I started as a way to merge my love of
design and fashion with textile and mixed media art.
The theme is always the cover of a particular magazine and
the design is always embroidered.

Then it is painted. Add collage and other mixed media applications.
This is my January Glossy.

I do love your Vogue cover better, Alma.

Very cool, Alma! This opens up all kinds of possibilities. I will never look at a magazine cover in quite the same way, again.
