Remnants18 Group of 4

To make the string patches for my built up works, first I use small pieces of cardboard wrapped with plastic and using matte gel adhere the fabric bases [linen in this case], then wrap the strings around the cardboard, taping them to the back and then adhere the cut out pieces of handmade/cast paper on the top to hold it all in place. Then I let them dry overnight and then they can be peeled away from the plastic and used as focal points in my mixed media works or on journals.
Mixed Media on 4- 8x8 stretched canvases.
