When school ended I asked my youngest for all of her school papers. She was very nervous – what would a parent want to do with all that work? Art. She had lots of papers, so I am set for quite a while. I thought all the different inks, papers, and handwriting would make a great first layer. Her homework and any paper within reach was fair game. I started stitching the pages together. Guerrilla stitching. Nothing careful, nothing orderly. Just sewing.
After making a giant random page of her handwriting, homework, and worksheets I went for my stencils. Pan Pastels are new to me so I didn’t know what to expect. Creamy goodness. Vibrant colors. Here is one of the quilted papers.
You can see how I used this in a journal page here.
