Chapter 5 Developing designs for appliqué – rubbings

I assembled various images of flying birds from my image library.

I like the effect on tissue paper – a somewhat ethereal quality, but the design is clearer on the sketchbook page and the rice paper.

I liked the three geese heads (somewhat modified from the original image) and combined these with eggs and feathers.

The double rubbing wors well. I had to scan the border pattern in two goes as it was a bit too long for the scanner.  It looks better in reality.


The above block was too simple, so I separated each piece into further sections which  I think is more successful. Reminds me now of flying geese (the sort on the wall)!
