The starting point for further work samples is the image above.
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.
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.
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
At least I wanted to know how the sample would look like a picture with a passe-partout . I made a design with photoshop.
