Old Lace

Another in my hipster series.
I love vintage lace and have a collection of lace trim that I use in my craft projects. I took some photos of it recently thinking of making brushes with it, when I had the idea for this image.
Lace often has been a tool of seduction. The oldest spinner of lace is, of course the spider, who weaves its web to trap its food. However, lace is also used as a lure but I wondered how often it traps the person who uses this tool? Seduction is a two way thing after all.... and used in the oldest profession in the world...
All other images/textures/brushes my own.

  1. Lace is always beautiful - I always hate cutting it to use though, it seems almost criminal - perhaps photographing it is less painful!
