Tissue Paper Collage

The latest stitchclub with textile.org featured an amazing south African artist, Monique Day Wilde and I was so inspired by her workshop and process. We began with botanicals and printing them on tissue paper. This example is where I have brayered over the spray of acacia and then printed on the tissue paper. Some plants are better subjects than others. The acacia is one of my favourites. Once we have a range of tissue papers they will be torn and then collaged onto watercolour paper
