Paper/Fabric Collage and Embroidery

This week I played with Paper Collage again but this time used embroidery too. I used my life drawings as a template. I used embroidery thread to outline different shapes. 

To avoid ripping the paper, I made the holes first, by placing a sponge under the paper and piercing it with a needle.

I used Cross Stitch under the breast, Seeding Stitch under the collar bone, a lot of Straight Stitch and a Patchwork Style near the Belly Button. 

I then also tried Paper and Fabric Collage:
