Mixed Media Explorations
Blending Paper, Fabric, and Embellishment to Create Inspired DesignsBook - 2006
With a sense of humor and creative abandon, this guide shows how surprisingly easy it is to turn fabric, paper, stitch, and embellishment into artistic treasures to keep and share. Step-by-step instructions for making projects such as greeting cards, wall hangings, and books are provided, while the latest mixed-media products and techniques are also used, including embroidery stitches, etching, burning, metallic threads, paints, embed fibers, and found objects. Basic design principles are also employed, such as layering, highlighting motifs, and creating grids to give art depth and meaning.
