My Story a Collage by Lynne Moncrieff



When I was working on the recently posted book featuring the Dina Wakley Collage Tissue Faces, I knew I would need to single out a face for a collage.

My "go to product" of That's Crafty! Walnut Ink Crystals, along with their Peal Inks, created the splattery style background. I like the way that the Dina Wakley tissue paper, allows the inky blotches to appear through the face, it's almost as though she has cheeks painted in and freckles.

It's possible another of the faces will speak to me, to appear on a collage, wanting to reveal her own story that she wants to share.

Extras: sewing machine, black sewing thread. torn piece of walnut ink stained shipping tag.
I also used a fragment of walnut ink stained calico with this fabulous That's Crafty! Mandala Stencil, applied with Texture Paste.


I keep walnut ink crystals, dissolved in a glass jar with screw top lid and also decanted into a spray bottle.

After applying Gesso to the paper panel, the walnut ink was sprayed.

Walnut Ink was also applied to Rice paper and once dry, stamping an image from Affirmations Set 5, tearing around the image.

Tearing around one of the Dina Wakley Collage Faces, this along with the stamped image and the stained paper, were taken to the sewing machine.

I began tearing away excess Collage Tissue Paper from the bottom stitched edge of the face. The stitching makes it easy to tear away this area.

Another piece torn from the walnut ink stained rice paper was machine stitched to the panel.

Tiny scraps: a torn piece of walnut ink stained shipping tag, layered with a teeny fragment of walnut ink stained calico which had mandala stencilled with Texture Paste.

There is almost, always, a home for even the smallest most random of pieces.
