Paper embroidery


These prints by Emily Barletta can only be fully appreciated upon close inspection, whereby
the intricate and precise outlines are revealed to be hand-stitched into the paper medium.
I’m in awe of the patience and dedication required to make something so detailed and illusory.
Perhaps on a rainy day I will attempt it myself, although I don’t imagine the results to be as stunning.

    1. Im so glad you like them Alix. I thought they were wonderfully intricate! It was a frosty day here in NZ and I almost started my own paper embroidery but I didn’t know where to start. Spontaneous creativity is definitely not my strong point!
