Rip, Slash and Burn

Today I decided to take slashing and burning (see previous post) one step further and add ripped paper. I painted some cotton rag paper with Twinkling H2O watercolours before ripping it into strips to show the white core. These strips were attached to the organza and felt base by running the soldering iron along the edge to melt the fabric. After that I used the soldering iron to make patterns and lines on the fabric layers. Some layers of organza were removed in places. Some areas were then slashed with scissors and then blasted with a heat gun to ruffle them up and expose the layers beneath.
