Watch the Process - Stitched Collage

 

I’ve always been fascinated by collage.

There is something very satisfying when you bring seemingly unrelated items together; those bits of paper and fabric, watercolor and acrylic, stitches and crayons.

It’s like they say, “Hello! I think we are perfect for each other, mind if I sit next to you?”

I’ve been making painted and stitched strips as part of The 100 Day Project and my latest workshop, Booklet Bundles of Joy and with so many papers and bits, I decided to try a simple exercise in collage making.
