Having discovered Matt Medium as a means of fabric lamination, all be it with tissue paper so far, I wanted to try using photocopied images laminated to fabric before stitching into the surface.
The paper laminated successfully.
Selecting images and tearing them to get the exact element of the picture and layering them.
With the elements laminated I felt that I wanted to include some text about the subject. I had written a piece of text some time before so went back to this and printed it off. I then added it to the edge of the piece.
The text was then laminated, although I might not have chosen to have it at the margin of the piece if I has thought of this at the start!
Three important lessons learned..... Try not to get too much Matt Medium on the fabric where the image will not be; print the images on to lighter weight copy paper and where possible remove bits of any image which will be covered by the next addition to prevent the build up of multiple layers of paper which then have to be stitched through.
