I promised to add the paper leaves embeddinto scrim. These were strightforward to make as shapes described in chapter4 in my 4th batch of papers [positive and negative shapes]. I just held the piece of scrim under the PVC so that the scrim entrapped the pulp. these are in their raw state and I could stitch into these later.
This was my attempt to capture the forest floor previosly and I wondered if I could improve it by embedding letters and leaves onto scrim
Letters and leaves embedded onto scrim with added running stitch to define shapes
Still not sure! And the paper proved fragile to stitch into despite fabric backing. I need to think again!
I experimented with using letters and leaves as view finders and was pleased with the results and will experiment more by making the view finders out of my own hand made paper:
Here is one using handmade paper:
I’m interested in incorporating these leaves [pages] in my book in some way.
