Layers and textures intrigue me.
The idea of creating a cocoon to encase my art is just as important to me as the art its self.
I often use wax paper to create pockets to house my work as its reflective ghost like quality adds a depth and intrigue.
The transparent layer allows your eyes to image that what lay beneath...
Once opened you will discover layers of fabrics and papers connected with a sewing machine, threads are deliberately left and tied together. Stamps and ink are used to add extra texture and help to anchor the various layers that were combined.
(TIP: if you use a sewing machine to sew on papers you will need to use a 4 or 5 stitch setting to keep your paper from perforating.)
In march of 2007 I shared how I made fabric ATC's (art cards)
for the most part my process is still the same, I hope you will take a look and try your hand at creating your own small art.
