Paper Collage with Boro Repair Stitching!

Whilst researching some examples
of Kantha Stitching, I came
across some examples of Boro
repair stitching.

This inspired me to have a play with
some painted brown packaging.

Found this Chinese Lantern flower still on
the plant, loved how some of the
orange colour remained..

Love the surface textures that are created
by tearing

Till next time!!

Stamping Collage.

Experimenting with a stamping collage. No layers, just built up some stamping from my collection.

Like this effect, going to try and stamp onto some layers and try this also, see what happens!!

Post Card Paper Collage

This month on the Countryview Crafts challenge blog, Sue has chosen the theme of Postcards.

Here is my take on this..

From my bit box I stamped using PaperArtsy mini's 19,26 and 44. I also stamped using some of the images from PaperArtsy Lynne Perrella Collection 007. They were arranged onto a Postcard size piece of card.

I remember Andy Skinner saying you could use the DecoArt Media over a coat of Ultra Matt varnish, so I used several layers of Paynes Grey, Burnt Umber and Quadricone Red.

Enjoyed making this collage, off to make some more!!

Infusions Hare!!

This fortnight the topic is Whimsy, over on the Paperartsy Blog.

I made this Hare in a patchwork style!!

I dyed some calico with Infusions In The Navy and Rusty Car. With some copier paper I cut out a 'head' shape along with some ears.

I cut up the head into 4 and hand stitched together, I saw a patchwork cushion recently where all the seams were on the outside, liked the raggedy look!!

His eye and moustache are from some calico that I dyed last year with Infusions Blackcurrant. All stitched together. Rather pleased with him, glad Darcy provided a dictionary meaning, he certainly is odd, without explanation, nonsense!!!
