Needed some grounding so tried some neutrals onto some brown packaging.

Another view.

Some stitching to hold together, new stitch whipped running stitch..

A book page segment was on my desk, seems very apt..

Paper Collage.

One of my friends Debs Wainwright from debsartzone kindly provided some patterned papers, so I came up with this collage with some of my photography.

Calling this Migration, as at the moment I am seeing lots of birds meeting up ! and getting ready to migrate.

Mixed Media Collage.

The pig food I buy now comes in a double walled paper sack, the inner wall is brown, free substrate. Takes acrylics and stitching very well..

Artist Trading Coins.

This fortnight the topic over on the Paper Artsy blog is  Artist Trading Coins. I was inspired to make this hanging by Helen Chilton.

When I saw Helen's project, it made me think of falling leaves as it is the season!!. Some texture paste applied with my fingers onto  some grey board..

My coins are several pieces of rice paper that I dyed with Paper Artsy Infusions in Rusty  Car.

The leaves are from the pear tree, the fruits are now ripening and I have been enjoying a pear every day!!. I painted them with some Paper Artsy Fresco Chalk Paint in Caribbean Sea.

The board was painted with an undercoat of Fresco Chalk paint in Cheesecake and a watery mix of Slate. I secured the leaf to the coins with a reverse chain stitch.

Great fun, don't forget to check out the blog!!!

Collage with Chain Stitch.

Brown packaging with some Paynes Grey and Prussian Blue. Learned a new stitch, reverse chain stitch. Love the surface texture.

Close up detail of the stitch.
