I have been a Rihanna fan since her first album was released. When choosing albums for this series it is often difficult to pick an album from an artist when you like all of them. I chose the Rated R album because I think it personifies Rihanna at her edgiest. When you see this album in an arrangement with others her stare pops right off the wall. I embroidered this album with over 100,000 abstract wool stitches in 5 shades of black and grey. The album title was added as little patches collaged onto the album.
