Sue created her silk paper with leaves in mind, incorporating many different types of texture into the paper. She then cut out the leaves and appliqued them to her pieced background. The shadows behind the leaves are painted dryer sheets. Thread embroidery adds texture and highlights to the branch.
Sue Anne's silk paper has been used to add texture and shape to her journal cover. She has embellished the silk paper with beads and painted paper squares finished with charms.
