Fabric Paper

This is a piece of fabric paper that follows Beryl Taylor's instructions on the Workshop on the Web june 2007.
I used white cotton poplin, painted it with a 60/40 water/PVA mix and then played with papers and fibres to create the collage, finally covering with lilac tissue paper. Over the top of this I used some paint. Then the fun bit I FME over the surface to create contrast and tonal change. The close up below shows some interesting sections.
At the moment I think it will be a book cover.
