Here I cut it cardboard pieces, covered thim with tissue paper before glueing them down and covering the whole with crumpled tissue paper again. The spaces between the shapes could further be "embellished" with additional twisted lines of paper...
Another idea would be to apply Suffolk puffs with their opening sewn to the background
3h: losange shapes were cut out of simple copy paper. The openings were filled with crumpled tissue paper
3i: the paper used here is tissue paper folded into squares and glued down so that they overlap
3j: my own version of the the seed head. This is not an exact representation but I wanted to render the airy impression of it. For this, little triangles of tissue paper were fringed and glued won in a circular movement.
3k: trying to reproduce the lichen on the tree bark was a bit of a challenge because of its fine, rich and irregular texture. So I stitched (without the thread in the needle) the shapes below onto a double layer of tissue paper, then tore them out and stitched them very closely (2together) on black paper with a free-machine zigzag stitch.
3l: This sample was inspired by the enlarged seed of the fern leaves of pic 1x. The shape somehow reminded me of chinese fortune cookies. Here I used simple copy paper as tissue paper would not have been stiff enough
Working with paper certainly has its limits but gives an idea of what kind of fabric could be used to reproduce the textures. Even more textures could be used in the negative spaces
