I've been playing about with the momigami, (paper kneading) technique, I found in Cas Holmes
' The Found Object in Textile Art'. I'd love to know if anyone else has used it? The cover was molded and bonded to stiffen it - and hopefully make it durable! It gave a nice, leathery effect.
Inside colour pencil worked quite effectively on the dyed paper.
On the right are a couple of blank notebooks I put together with momigami covers.
This is my favourite page. I have a thing about the arum family!
I'm happy with this and learnt a lot of useful things making it!
One of the good things about being a curious bumblebee is that you can buzz back to the same flower. Over the last few weeks, I find myself being drawn back more strongly to embroidery.
Isn't it odd though, that when you feel the need for a change, the past rears its head?
Last week I had three separate enquirers asking me if they could see my dolls - and would I run a doll class again? It was lovely to be asked - then I realised I hadn't actually got one single place with my photos - so I decided to add some new pages here. It did seem strange to put them back on my blog, after all!
