Once dry the beauty of the paper is visible. Interesting things can happen with the background too
The above shows the front and back of a paper background
The above shows a background of cotton fibres. A piece of this paper is included in our packs so that you can experiment. This surface too is perfect for stitching – and I often use it for book covers.
Sometimes there is a double use as a quick ‘print’ will result in a watercolour-like finish – and you can still use the paper as above. The video below shows the imprint left – remember to lift the tissue immediately while still wet – it can be transferred to another area for use or left on polythene to dry before peeling off for use.
Still time to enrol on the following course. Small group guaranteed. A safe and encouraging environment. Ask questions – develop your own style – take it stage by stage. Complete the form below to enrol or ask for more details.

What is a Journal? Is it the same as a Diary?
Spend the month of October finding out!
Activities will take part on a private blog that is easily accessed.
Due to pressure of work and family committments there will be no Be Creative in July. However, here is a chance to be as creative as you like and be rewarded for your efforts with an exchange!
Saturday August 2nd has been designated the National Celebration of Stitch. Various UK branches of the Embroiderers’Guild have organised venues for stitching, but what about those who are not members of a branch – or who can’t get to a venue – or just want to stitch where they are ……. Well, here is an event for you!
Artist Trading Cards are small works of art that can be made using any technique, but in celebration of Stitch this post is to announce an exchange of the little stitched cards. There is no specific theme, the only criteria is that some stitch must be included somewhere – hand stitching, machine stitching – your choice. ALL STANDARDS ARE WELCOME – YOU ONLY NEED AN INTEREST IN STITCHING TO TAKE PART.
If you would like to take part please complete the form below with your name and address. By completing the form you are committing to making an ATC and sending it to the participant whose name you will be given. This form goes directly to me – you will receive details from ATCexchange (at) gmail.com – you can also email directly if you prefer. Please pass the word too.
