Okay, I did not make a folded pen today but I did finish my ATCs for the month. The theme was "Lines and Grids" and I have the book "Drawn to Stitch: Line, drawing, and mark-making in textile art" by Gwen Hedley. Hmm....lines and lines. Sounds like a good match and my chance to crack the book. I chose to try the lines on pages 96-97. Those lines were made by stitching on an old brown envelope, wetting the paper, and gently removing most of the paper.
Next I wetted it and crumpled it. Then picked off most of the brown paper.
To finish them, I added a parade of straight lines made out of my hand dyed embroidery thread.
