silk and collage

I love how silk is so shiny and soft
Fabric paper made from magazine scraps on scrim/fine cheesecloth (used back to front), silk fibres trapped under acetate and free machined.

Also, here's a look at a couple of collages I am working on at present.
This first one is up to my fouth layer (ie base then paper, tissue, paint, stencilled paste) and I am cogitating on the next few layers.
This one is only up to the tissue and paint stage - but I like it!  needs a bit of thinking, but since it is raining here, will take a while to dry.  My initial reaction is to continue on the leaf theme and do some autumn type leaves, but we will see.
