A blog about making art and other things using cloth, paper, paint, colour, stitch, and all sorts of exciting techniques, some of which I'm sure I still have to discover! I hope that the joy all this gives me is visible in what you can see here.

Learning Lessons.


Following on from my last post, I've made a very small paper cloth concertina book.


Each little page is only 2" square, (5 cm) .



I worked from the reverse side of these small pages, and I think the needle has pulled the paint and paper through to the right side.



My fingers were nearly stitched onto the page quite a few times! 


The reverse (wrong) side, shows how much clearer the stitching is.


I stitched from the reverse side, as I found the paint and texture I had created on the front too distracting to be able to 'draw' with the machine needle.


I'm going to have a go at another, slightly larger version of this butterfly, moth, bee, bird theme, and I'll also stitch from the front next time, hopefully!

Thanks for joining me again so soon!
