It's a bit yucky in my workroom. The gluing corner is all I am
prepared to reveal. The painting area is like a disaster zone.
Tubes of paint, piles of painted papers, brushes, sponges etc.,
you get the picture. However, the book x 2 is currently under
telephone directories and heavy tomes flattening out.
Under construction. Painted, printed and stitched papers,
a little bit of fabric. Instead of folding the card, I am joining
the back and front square with a calico hinge.
The patterns are of Indian design, surprise, surprise! This one
is reverse applique. There are four pages in all, front and back.
Fun to do and a huge, messy learning curve. Getting carried
away with various pots and tubes of colour. Finding, on
applying CMC paste, that some mediums bleed. This was
pretty obvious anyway, if I had engaged my brain! Lovely
colours with old Procion dyes - of course they will bleed!
Any ideas on 'fixing' them on paper?!! Is there a way?
Now I must clear up - there are trails of paper and bits all
over the house. Not many clear surfaces in my workroom.
This might take a little time!
