Daily Paper Prompt #10: Stitch Paper

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

Circles cut with a circle punch and stitched to a gelatin print.

This little collage was stitched with a sewing machine. I played around with the various stitches and switched out the thread while working to get a variety of thread colors.

Photograph stitched to my art journal page using metallic embroidery floss and some sort of blanket stitch.

This prompt is to sew paper! You can sew by hand with regular thread or embroidery floss or sew with your sewing machine. I love, love, love sewing paper.

I bought a sewing machine with the specific intention of sewing paper! Many folks have asked about my sewing machine... it's a Janome 7330 Magnolia. I've had it for 4 years and use it primarily for sewing paper. It has 30 different stitches but I usually use only the straight and zigzag stitches!

What's the Daily Paper Prompt?
