I think my idea is a new and original technique-I've never seen it before. I created it by taking the concept of paper-cloth and building various layers upon that technique; First, I began layering the cloth with regular tissue paper, letting each layer dry in between; I added random layers of vintage sewing patterns and their envelopes, printed napkins, painted paper towels…
I used some of my favorite fabric scraps to create a collage that I later decided to construct into a bag I can enjoy daily.
Our public school English teacher daughter dreams of going to Great Britain. She requested these shoes. Acrylic and ink.
My daughter is a sci-fi fan, and asked for these shoes. 🙂
After painting two pairs of shoes for my daughter, I decided to begin a pair for myself!

Upcycled book pages, pearls, thread and tulle. Reminiscent of bridal headwear at the turn of the century.
