I decided to do a book and this is the first page. Finished.
Not happy with the contrast...:
I sew the squares to a dyed cheese cloth. I punched it to some paper.
I added more contrast to the piece with couching and these stitches:
Now I'm happy. I put some tulle underneath and more paper:
I sew it to these layers...
Back, painted with white acrylic paint:
Added one more layer of tulle to the back and sew everything together so that you can turn the page of the book when the piece is finished:
Contrast before and after:
I'm always asked how I plan a piece. I hope this semi-challenge is the answer. I began with an idea and added to it. I can't keep the same concept for 3 months... I always get more ideas and the piece speaks to me all the time.
Now I will continue with page 2...
I love this page and look forward to seeing the others as you create them.ReplyDelete
must be a nice sturdy page with all the extra layers !!!ReplyDelete
