Nature Journals

For the last week of the Nature Journal pages we worked on images of mammals that we had seen recently. I've seen hares, rabbits and squirrels this last week. These are painted calico that was appliquéd onto a painted background. A couched line was added round each of the animals to define their outlines and add details.

Spring journals

More pages for the spring journals from today's session at Brewery Arts. The backgrounds are fabric paper made using PVA and the insects are also from fabric paper but made using bondaweb instead of the glue.
