What the deuce? Well, you may ask - more random photos of work in progress...namely, you guessed it - of the Pulpy kind. As you can see, I've been having fun making fabric paper. Photo 1 is exactly that - a close up of my newly handmade fabric paper. Photo 2 is another exactly that - the paper in its entirety.
Lots of paint and PVA and lots of recycling: paper, lace, tissue, ribbon and holy book pages! All for cutting up and sewing up (Photo 3)! Then, a bit of fiddling around with placement (photo 4) and viola. Page is not looking too shabby.
Photo 5 is just to spook ya! Muh ha ha....
Actually, photo 5 is the finished third panel, bottom left of the book page...see my last posting for more detail on that.
So if you're wondering how on earth I made the fabric paper, go HERE. I've written the recipe up on my Barter Circle blog, which is still going strong, albeit the infrequent postings....which I aim to rectify in the not so didtant future, lol.
Now it's time to feel sorry for me.
LOOK - I have nowhere to sit in my studio!
That chair - though you may not be able to see it very well, is actually bursting with art supplies.
And now an announcement:
Elizabeth, your secret mystery envelope is winging its way over to you as I speak. Simon, I still haven't done yours yet, sorry.
Now back to my studio...
No, let's not!
