It's amazing what you can do with stuff you have around the house to include in PE collages. If I have a piece of fabric which I have dyed or painted which is really good, I scan it into my computer knowing that I may well use it in something else.

I'm looking forward to the embroidery course I have just signed up for which is starting in a week's time - could do something great with this I reckon!
Great ideas, Ann. Have you tried gelli printing yet? This is something I am very keen to try. As a monoprinting technique, scanning stuff in is an extremely good idea because you get to use it again.ReplyDelete
