Illustration Friday - Intricate
Here's my take on this week's theme - Intricate. I couldn't face another really intricate painting like the little nest and birdsI did last week, so decided to make a collage for something different. I must admit this was pretty fiddly to make too, but it was made in a few hours unlike the nest that took all week! This little striped cat is sleeping on a quilt made with Japanese Chiyogami papers. Puss is cut from rice paper with black card stripes, some graphite pencil detail, and whiskers of fishing line dipped in gesso. Unfortunately the scanner hasn't quite done justice to the beautiful silver and gold designs, but you can get a better look at the intricacy of the hand printed papers if you click on the image!
Look who's been helping out again! Tia enjoying the creative process with me yesterday!
