Fiber Play

I start with these fiber twists of paper that I've painted with acrylic paints. The painted paper technique I learned from Eydi Lampasona in her mixed media/collage classes locally. (if you ever have a chance to take one of her classes or workshops - YOU MUST!! She's great) The fiber twisting part was my own doing.

Then I play with stitching the twists - maybe onto some distressed painted tyvek? Root-like, I play with this often. Shades of Maggie Grey/Jane Wild in the tyvek torture!!

Or stitched into whorls (a repeating theme of mine - purging stresses of some recent busy hurricane seasons).
More pics on my flickr site...

  1. Oh Jackie, this is AWESOME! Makes we want to rush home and twist paper *right now* - and that's always a sign that I'm really taken with something :)
    (What? I have to WORK? What, the whole day? Blech. Why do I do this? ...Oh yes, the money.)

  2. So you're back to work post-surgery then. A good sign of recovery. Darn that money stuff - just filters right through the fingers so quickly. ;)

  3. All of this is beautiful! And creative!


Thanks for stopping by!! Love to read your comments - whether on vintage thrifting or creative stitching!! (Comments are moderated due to high spam lately - sorry!)
