    Daily Paper Prompt #10: Stitch Paper

    “The world doesn't make sense,
    so why should I paint pictures that do?”
    Pablo Picasso

    DPP #10 is to sew paper. You can sew by hand with regular thread or embroidery floss or sew with your sewing machine. You've gotta know by know that I LOVE sewing paper. Here are some examples.

    I sewed this photo to my art journal page with metallic embroidery floss using a sewing machine needle {it was nearby, that is my only excuse} and a modified blanket stitch from my imagination.

    Another photo weirdly blanket stitched with the same thread.

    This little collage was stitched with a sewing machine.

    This is kind of inspired by "Pong" or air hockey where the puck bounces in straight lines from the edges. Machine stitch in a straight line til you get almost to the edge. With the needle in the down position, stop and pivot on the needle to go another direction to ricochet the stitches as you wish.
