More Ratty Tatty

I'm a bit late in showing this lot of my Ratty Tatty Papers workshop with Dale but what can I say---I just forgot.
The first photo is a piece of the painted tissue paper that I had done earlier and I attached it to black felt with vliesofix.
Where the tissue had holes in it and the vliesofix showed through I added some rust foil.
I love the look of this piece.






The next one is another piece of painted tissue attached to felt as above and I machine stitched on some strips of painted paper and appliqued them to the tissue base.
I then gave it a coat of Acrylic wax.



The last one has a base of silk cocoon strippings stitched to black felt and I then added some one inch tiles made from a left over from the above piece.




I love this piece.

Doreen These are really beautiful. The colours are really lovely and particularly like the one with squares on it. The patterning of the background and the squares on top works really well. Suzann e

Yes Doreen these are very attractive pieces. I love to see all the experimental work out there. It's never-ending the textile field.

Your ratty tatties look like they were fun to create ... to experiment with those combinations of out of the box materials.
