I've been fiddling around with papier/fabric mache today
I've glued squares of fabric onto a piece of paper - I think I'll do some hand stitching on it next, and then maybe some buttons ?
I've long loved papier mache, there are quite a few pieces knocking around the house,
this little bowl was made from newspaper pulp and painted with acrylics, it's such fun to do and I find it really relaxing - I like layering things.
A google blog search found some lovely paper/fabric goodies for me..
Stephanie and Mia's lovely hot air balloons
Ann's amazing ships
and Amanda has a brilliant tutorial here
and then a further google search led me here - an artist that uses paper, fabric and found objects.
oh, and did I ever tell you how much I love Shari Elf's work ?
and I can't talk about paper and fabric without mentioning Julie Arkell again - a girl can never have too much Julie Arkell , and take a look at the other artists on this website - I love these little girls and him and him. Cute.
Here's my wip for today
a little puppy waiting for his legs and a tail to wag.
Have a lovely weekend !
