Experimental Variations with unusual padding like wood shaving from the wood turner studio of my husband and frayed threads remained of ch four.the top layers are net . The backing of all pieces are calico.One example had been stitched by machine and the other by hand

The starting point for further work samples is the image above.

                                                                           picture 6
For the wadding material, I used thorned pieces of corrugated cardboard. The background is stabilized cotton and the top layer is gauze. Thus the structure of corrugated cardboard is still visible.

                                                                          picture 7
To emphasize the relief of cardboard I applied acrylic paint with a rubber roller. Unfortunately, I have applied the color too thick in some places. That looks very smeared to me . The next time I will attempt to make sure the rubber roller to move very lightly only against the direction of the relief.

                                                                       picture 8
The same startingpoint as before. I used for the top layer calico and than as wadding material also corrugated
cardboard. The wadded scraps were painted by rubbing with wax crayon. I mounted the pieces with my embellisher on painted calico and than I all machine stitched

                                                                         picture 9
At least I wanted to know how the sample would look like a picture with a passe-partout . I made a design with photoshop.
