Freezer Paper Experiments

Well I had a bit of a tidy up in my studio the other day, shocked my husband as he could actually see the workbench! Anyway I came across some scraps of freezer paper which I was going to throw away but I thought I would have a little play instead. For the sample above I folded the paper, then randomly cut 'circles'. I ironed it onto fabric then painted with acrylics, after drying I removed the paper. They look like stones, perhaps I should cut them out to make a wall?
For the sample below I used a few bits of freezer paper, which I folded in different ways, then cut out sections, then ironed them all next to each other on the fabric. I used a more watery acrylic for this. I may paint the white parts if I ever get around to doing anything with it.

below - the fabric was already attached to the freezer paper so I carefully scored the paper with a craft knife and removed bits of the paper. I painted with acrylics again to make the wavy lines. I think this piece needs a lot more doing to it.
