Loopy Lace Page 6
Page 6 came from Leonie Bryant, who created an image with a paintbrush tool using a few different colours. This was then printed onto hand made paper. The fish were created from fabric, then FME lace was created around them using water soluble fabric. The fish & lace were hand stitched to the paper, then everything was stitched to felt.
Using a paper background is not something I have tried, though I have used small pieces of paper in my work, like this bookmark. Paper tends to blunt everything, including scissors & sewing machine needles. I do have special scissors just for paper, & I could mark a packet of needles just for paper, but the reality is I love fabric better.
