Results of the Paper Leather Tart Kit

Using paper leather for the skin on Jamie's Yam give this quilt a touch of realism. The paper was colored with the brown paint from the kit as well as chalks to give the orange highlights. The grungeboard is used underneath the paper for dimension and the ink is used as shadow. The quilt was quilted and mounted on a canvas covered with fabric.

Susan's sons are the Dryrock Gang! Their photo was transfered to osnaburg with transfer art paper. The paper leather is the piece of "hide" behind the poster. Susan used paint, Misty Fuse, and ink to create the leather. Painted grungeboard is the poster. Susan first painted the board black and then placed vinyl letters on the board before overpainting with an off-white paint. She then pulled the vinyl off leaving the black reverse stencil. These components were then attached to a pieced and quilted background. The paper leather is used to bind the quilt.

Sue Anne used her leather paper to make cowboy boots. The grunge board has been painted red to add the detail to the boots. The poster is a scaled down version of a poster that belongs to her mother.
