I've just finished Chapter 4 and what a great time I've had doing it. It was like being a child again painting and cutting paper. Did you every make paper doilies at school? You know you fold a square of paper up and cut bits out and when you open it up you have a doily, well it was a bit like that and boy did I have fun.
The first part was in black paper and I got a bit carried away with it, so here goes with the photos.
I had to pick a shape from my research and use it for inspiration to cut various shapes from the folded paper.
Next I had to do the same thing but in coloured paper and use 3 layers - one background, and 2 cut layers. All the pieces of paper in black and in colour are 10cms square. I only had to do 6 designs for this part but I got carried away again I was enjoying myself so much.
Next I've got to select some fabrics and decorate them then I can get stitching.
