Everyone loves making sketchbooks and they are even more useful when they provide inspiration and ideas for a series of stitched textiles. This book shows you how to work from design source to finished piece, exploring a variety of mixed media techniques on the journey.
This 80-page book first provides step-by-step instructions through a basic technique. These are followed by exciting ideas for extending the technique.
From backgrounds built-up with gesso and paper to finished pieces using kozo fibres and embossing powder. Learn about heat techniques with felt and gesso, and make painted borders using grungeboard. Just a few of the ideas from the book.
HOT NEWS: Free online classes with this book.
Everyone has asked Maggie to teach online workshops and she is going to do just that, based on extending the book ideas even further. The classes will start in November and, to enter them, you will need to have a copy of the book handy. Sounds like a lot of fun.
It is Maggie's ambition to produce a comprehensive glossary covering all the products and techniques that give us so much trouble in translating the languages of various English-speaking countries. This is 'work in progress' and, at present, relates particularly to this book. If you would like to add anything to the glossary, email Maggie at .
