Having made twelve backgrounds by photocopying found found surfaces onto cartridge paper, I have produced a second layer of shapes using machine stitch onto tracing paper. Exploring the linear quality of machine stitch I have made use of red and blue thread to reference sewing markings used in dress making. These second layers will be photocopied onto the first layer prior to letterpress text being added by P.
Photocopying the tracing paper stitched patterns onto the cartridge paper first backgrounds worked well. Slight adjustments were made in the printing to heighten the colour of the thread by using the colour management settings and two backgrounds were amended to lighten the tone of the first background in order for the machine stitched line to be seen clearly.
