Technique # 18 Quilting with paper


Sorry about the blurry image. For some reason my camera wouldn't focus.


A rectangular sheet the size of a two-page spread is under the needle with my first triangle of folded paper


Here it is with all the shapes sewn on to the backing rectangle.


I know it is hard to see but this is the sheet gessoed and with the stitches covered with oil pastel


I missed a step in pictures. This is the spread colored with watercolors and a few acrylic painted spots.


Here is the finished spread with colored pencil marks and dots and x's in correction fluid.


This is the back.
