Section A is Drawing onto thin plastic layers such as food wrap plastic or cling film. You draw patterns onto the plastic and then fold/ pleat crumple to make an interesting fractured design.
Below are the folded/ scrunched drawings

6 Drawings layered and laid on coloured background
Some of these new patterns were interesting and useful for backgrounds eg as used on the silk paper. I liked the effect of layering patterns eg the shell stamp and bold circles. This was a useful exercise for me.
Designing with layers Section C Drawing with wire for laminated layers
``First draw objects without moving the pencil/ pen off the paper, then explore objects in different arrangements and detail
After selecting the objects they were translated into wire, and rubbings made onto tissue papers and different fabrics. I used oil pastels for the rubbings as they gave fairly clear outlines on the fragile tissue papers and on the fabric,
Then collages were assembled and stuck onto a calico background, Machine stitching decorated and highlights parts of the collages.
Fabrics used for rubbings included scrim, cotton net, organza, a nylon lace and muslin,
Chapter 10 is ready to load but I must go and show an interest in the rugby. Until tomorrow enjoy your stitching.
