Alison Cossons (UK) Michelle Jeffreys (UK) Judith Laundon (UK)

These 3 Shuffles arrived just as I was leaving to see Laura and Linda today with a boot full of boxes of portraits.

Alison Cosson's piece uses an emoji as a portrait - that's a first in the Shuffle! Alison says: 

My portrait is a sort of steam punk I guess. I photographed Bernina accessories and then endeavoured to make a smiley face emoji using a mixture of Gelatos, and acrylic wax, and a heart using the same materials. Children and adults express how they feel using emojis by text - a sort of portrait I guess. The photo of the Bernina accessories was printed via a Jacquard ink jet printing cotton sheet. There is a sandwich of white felt, cotton sheet, felt and steam-a-seam bondaweb and gesso around the smiley face and heart. A lot of sticking, painting, sewing!


Judith Laundon's piece is machine stitched in black and parts such as the accessories to the outfit are coloured in.
Michelle Jeffreys jolly piece is set into a pieced background of blue and pink/turquoise. There is machine stitching for the hair and glasses and the shirt/top, hair and necklace are hand coloured.
