I got my sewing machine out for a little bit of experimenting.
I treated myself to a little early Christmas present which arrived this week.... If you want bags of inspiration this is the book for you!!
I have used bondaweb before with fabrics but realised I could probably combine it with collaged paper, fabric AND paint!!
To find out more about using Bondaweb I recommend checking out Kim Thittichai, she has several great books on the subject and some great You tube clips.
Inspired to give it a go?? :)
First Bondaweb is ironed onto some medium weight cotton.
I then use it as a background for paper collage.
( the paper is collaged onto the fabric using a hot iron)
With acrylic craft paints
When dry the painted Bondaweb is ironed onto the Paper/fabric collage
it forms a stiff surface and I then stitched cut paper grasses and seed head embelishments to the landscape.
The background collage of papers shows through the painted Bondaweb.
the colours are rich and jewel-like. I also used some dimensional fabric paint to give a little surface detail.
