Use found and bought stencils to create marks and pathways for your stitched journey to follow. You will then add to these marks with ink colour washes that begin to define the sections of your journey. On to these layers we will build our piece with fabric collage and free machine and hand stitching. You may wish to include a ticket, seed packet or a piece of map for extra details.
