Making and Stitching Fabric Paper

March 26, 2013

Using my waterbrush to prepare paper for tearing
Papers layered and collaged to fabric
Today, I made some fabric paper by attaching sumi-e paper and colored Canson paper to a well-worn  handkerchief with acrylic matte medium.

I am remembering that stitching mistakes on paper are very conspicous! The needle makes an irreversible hole.
 The curvy lines I added were made with my little old Singer, in free-motion mode. I left the feed dogs exposed (they won't lower) and loosened the presser foot pressure as much as possible. I didn't think it would work so well!
