More ripped and revealed (and coloured)

After the rip and reveal Mary had some pleasing results
Orange tissue laid over dyed fabric just clings to the stitching after the 'rip'

Tissue first coloured with leaf shapes using oil pastel
But liked it better with colour added to darken
Diluted acrylic paint flooded through from the back

The second piece received the same treatment

Tissue transferred to a cream fabric

More rip and reveal

Penny produced several pieces using the gesso paper lamination technique - these two are particularly good

Gesso lamination - rip and reveal

On the second day of the workshop with Christine Chester we layered tissue paper with fabric, stitched, painted with gesso and laid another piece of fabric on top. We then had to wait to let it dry overnight before we could rip them apart. The results are varied, but interesting, and will provide backgrounds to be stitched and made up into finished work.

Helen's piece which had tissue shapes overlaid with a whole sheet of tissue.

Jane's piece using collaged tissue.Stitch stayed on the left, tissue and stitch marks transferred to the right 

Lynne's pieces using tissue coloured with oil pastels

Guest workshop member Marie used printed tissue with interesting results
