Cracked Paper Quilts 3

Cracked Paper Quilts 3: Revealing the Stitched Base and Adding the Cracks from Carol Wiebe on Vimeo.

After the papers are "pieced" (Cracked Paper Quilts 1) and the sandwich is made (Cracked Paper Quilts 2), it is time to reveal the stitched quilt and demonstrate how the cracks are constructed in a Cracked Paper Quilt.

This, however, is only the base quilt. Its surface now begs to have a whole cornucopia of techniques thrown at it, which includes painting with acrylic paints, drawing with pencils, pens and painstiks, stamping (with my own handmade stamps), screen printing, paper applique, crochet, collage, applying molding paste, mediums and dimensional paint, adding inclusions (made from papier mache and paper clay) and whatever I think of next.
