I began the sampling stage of my project by experimenting with screen printing using stencils, which I feel gives me more freedom when wanting to alter my design ideas. I have also trialled my designs using stitch into paper which is a technique that I have been developing whilst at university. The final technique shown here is that of a paper cut that I have sandwiched between two layers of plastic, making the outcome sturdy and suitable for a range of interior uses. The inspiration for the pieces below have derived from the photographs shown previously.
