A paper bag, magazine color strips and
an overall abstract theme with
some acrylic paint washes.
I machine stitched detail, then cut it apart
into strips and resewed it together.
Complete detail stitching all over the piece
in a free form way to create circles and organic shapes.
Those shapes then lend themselves to further
coloring with drawing pencils and gel pen.
The finished surface has a waxy quality without
any wax, almost cloth-like even though it is all paper.
I am thinking it might be fun to take it two-sided
and make a journal which could then have
further applications of layers of cloth and altered
We shall see…
