Collage: The art of making pictures by sticking cloth, pieces of paper, photographs and other objects onto a surface.
Most projects stitched on silk gauze can be used as wonderful embellishments in other projects. Anyone who also enjoys scrapbooking, card-making, memory boxes and any other multi-media art form will quickly see how these can add a very special and personal touch to their projects.
My imagination really starts to wander in lots of creative directions one of those is something known as artist trading cards or ATCs. These small cards usually 2.5" x 3.5" are miniature and unique works of multi-media art. What great gifts for stitching friends and mementos for your family!
Research it online and you will find plenty of videos and other resources, plus, most full-service craft stores will have supplies. I LOVE browsing these aisles in the store so much great "stuff" to embellish with! And don't forget your own stash of extra buttons, pins, bits of ribbon, lace, pretty specialty threads, etc.
These are highly individual pieces and my intention is to provide you with some ideas to get you started, in addition to some designs that you can stitch and incorporate into whatever project suits you. Watch this page for my future musings...The images shown on this page incorporate some of my existing designs just finished in a new way.
