Bozena Wojtaszek – Decay

Abandoned kitchen

It wasn’t such a big challenge to combine “Decay” with a kitchen theme. Just think about an abandoned kitchen and all sorts of decay come to mind. This time I choose this yellowish, rusty palette cause it goes very well with my vision of decays. I stitched many portraits of the kitchens so all the methods I used in this one are my all time favorites – applique, beading and a bit of embroidery.
