Artist Lynne Butt from TextileArtist site
"I like to work on different types of paper, and often put a coloured wash over pages, I paste in scraps of paper to add texture to drawings, I like to use charcoal and pastels for drawing so that I can smudge them."
"I tear the edges of the pages and then carefully paint along the torn edge (giving an aged effect). Layers of pages with torn edges are wonderful and I often photograph these sections using a macro lens which gives lovely blurred out of focus edges."
Since I enjoy working in art journals and incorporating fabric into my own mixed media pieces, I enjoyed reading about Lynn. Take some time to check out the TextileArtist site. There's a lot of good information here.
