During my personal study day, I decided to create some mixed media samples based on the leaf I heat transfer printed during my second print workshop. After learning all these new techniques, I decided to try incorporate all these skills into one piece. I started of with the lead because it was an interesting shape. I first got calico and stitched a leaf shape using blues and afterwards attempted using my own water based dyes for fabric onto the calico. The paints bled into the fabric and I thought it was a nice look. I then tested this idea out on some handmade paper I made in a workshop (sorry I don’t have any images), I first of all stitched into the paper and then lightly painted on top. This was a nice idea however the paper was hard to work with, and didn’t take the dyes how the calico did, which is what I liked.
