Combine two hot trends for a mixed media sensation! The new and easy-to-download Stitch Alchemy eBook offers more freedom for learning techniques for integrating paper and cloth to create quilted mixed media art. Blend the versatility of paper with the dimensional qualities of cloth for paper-cloth which can be easily transformed into collaged quilts using a variety of embellishment techniques from painting to stitching, needlefelting to beading.

Paper-cloth is appealing to many artists because it's inexpensive, and requires less space, equipment, and skill than dyeing fabrics for quilt making. Yet the end results provide layers of complexity and textural appeal. Paper-cloth can also be used to make a wide variety of mixed media projects including art quilts, art dolls, jewelry, artist books, and more.

You will learn step-by-step techniques for making basic paper-cloth, adding color and interest to the foundation with inks, stains, paints, and glazes, how to texturize, printmaking techniques, effects, and more. Ten projects range from bookmarks, paper beads, a journal cover, an inspiration deck, pocket book, and more. A multi-contributor photo gallery will inspire.

If you are interested in altered art, found and recycled art, needle felting and nontraditional elements you will be drawn to the Stitch Alchemy eBook, the first book to cross mediums and show how to blend the versatility of paper with the dimensional qualities of cloth.

Wow, what a lot of fun!
Trendy fusion or not, I just love this paper cloth. I started with Beryl Taylor's Layer By Layer download; and by the end of this book I've so far made 9 yards of paper cloth, one fat-quarter at a time. I can't get enough.
My one complaint: for a book I return to again and again, I'd love it to stand up to use. I've only had it a month, and it's already falling apart.

Stitch alchemy
This is possibly the best mixed media book I have ever purchased . Usually I can read thru these ebooks in a short time, this one has taken me days and I am still going. There are so many different techniques to look at and so much to learn. Congrats on a fabulous book, I can't recommend it highly enough. I believe this will be my mixed media bible and I will be looking things up many times in the future. Jennine in Brisbane. Review by Jennine Farrugia (Posted on 3/13/2012)
