Fabric+Paper beginnings

I bought Kelli Perkins book Stitch Alchemy a few weeks back hoping to experiment with her fabric and paper combinations.  Well today was the day to begin the process.  I scanned the entire book first, taking in all of the beautiful, detailed photos and then went back to actually read the process she uses.

Here is the beginning of my first fabric+paper attempt.  Here is a close up (the whole piece is 17 inch by 17 inch).

I have to wait until this is completely dry before moving on to the next step of coloring.

I am off to see what else is calling me in the art studio.

Cheers!

    Looks like a promising start. That book is on my wish list – I’ll be interested to hear how you like it and to see how this progresses.
