Nathalie’s Studio CJS 2017 with Natalya Aikens

When I saw Natalya’s video on her artwork using recycle material, I had to give it a go. As part of Nathalie’s Creative Jump Start 2017, Natalya’s take is Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Stitch.  It was very inspiring. There are so much plastic shopping bags out there, wouldn’t it be nice to somehow reuse or recycle it.

The base was a light thin foam which I am sure was packaging. Then I glued layers of grey and red plastic bags that I cut into squares or rectangles. I drew a design on tissue paper and tacked it on the plastic layers. Then embroidered following the design. When done I tore off the tissue paper.

Next one I will add a bit of bling to it. Maybe some sparkly thread.

This one will go to a penpal as part of our recycling theme.

Thank you Natalya and Nathalie.  It was an enjoyable session.
