Entitled 'Telegram from Bethlehem', this year's Christmas card had a story-telling element via the words in a telegram sent by the visitor's to the stable in Bethlehem - and a visual element - the old photograph of Bethlehem with a large star and a simple Christmas tree. This year I've been working with cyanotypes, photos and other ephemera and I wanted to use these materials for the card. It can be displayed using the photo clip holder supplied with it. The cyanotypes were done over two sunny days in the summer - 8 at a time. The part that took the longest was hand sewing the tiny silver stars and folding/packaging the elements into a parcel tied with twine and silver thread. I was pleased with the magical, ethereal quality of the cyanotype image. I've included several images of the process as well as the final creation.
