Today I am sharing one of the paper/fabric collages I have been making
recently. The background was a painted sheet from my stash,
and I used various scraps of fabric, painted paper and
mirri card. The eye has been printed on a 'skin', made of a mix of gold paint and gel medium, spread onto a piece of plastic and allowed to dry.
Thenit can be carefully peeled off and stamped or printed. This was just
one of the smaller scraps left over after using the main part, which
you will see another time. The photo is my distant relation, Erika,
taken shortly before she had to flee Germany during the Nazi time.
I have often used the photo of her as a little girl, dressed up in a winter
coat and fur muff. I had fun using different stitches and doing some
machine embroidery here.

And I have another tag for Chrissie's 'Favourite
colour combination' at Tag Tuesday.
Here are a few photos taken on yesterday's walk:
