Silk Paper Results

Susan used her silk paper as an abstract background over a fabric woven quilt. It is layered over hand dyed felted wool with black tulle. Susan sewed a variety of beaded elements to add interest to the surface.
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.

Jamie's silk paper sheet has been hand-stitched to a quilted background with the jalapeno pepper appliqued on top. Sequins glued in the corners add sparkle.
