new cloth....

Most of yesterday was spent putting new surfaces together, mixing Silk, lace and off white silk velvet to create cloth which I can use with my planned paper pieces. This is the first time I have used silk velvet in this way. I have used it in the past, mainly when I was studying and was required to test dyes. I recently found quite a small scrap which hadn't been used  so thought I would try it with this technique and I am so pleased I did. It adds a richness and the new cloth has a wonderful weight to it when handled.

I have a feeling I will be ordering silk velvet later today, replenishing my stash....

You can also see here a tiny section of one of my paper pieces which has been worked a little more. I am beginning to think more and more that this, (paper, silk and lace) is just what I needed to get myself out of last weeks creative meltdown.
