An idea for a large embroidered piece made with wax paper has haunted my mind for over a year now, but I can't seem to get started with it. This collage is an attempt for a warm-up of sorts.
After I complained about the absence of wax paper in Finland, a very kind reader sent some my way and made it possible for me to bring some of my ideas into reality. Thank you once more!
Three layers of wax paper still give a translucent result, so the background has a big effect on the way the collage looks like. The above photos were taken on a black background, below on a white.
I can imagine this looking great on various coloured backgrounds, too. Maybe even with a patterned background? A piece of old wallpaper perhaps...
