this reminds me of the japanese bookmaking techniques like erinzam's...very cool direction.
Your work is so delightful! I just adore the tiny stitches and the wonderful textures that you create with them.
accordions are wonderful...nice color, too.
Your beautiful book reminds me of a star anise
like a little book!
i've come back several times to look at this. is it silk, dyed with onion skins perhaps?
Thanks! Star anise is what it reminds me of too.Velma - the first and second picture are of the same thing. It's silk organza dyed with cherry leaves. The colour in the second photo is off. I guess you're right, though - onion skins could dye that sort of colour.
cherry leaves! and i was right about the organza. can you believe it, i just a couple weeks ago learned what organza is! i've spun silk, dyed, woven it, but never knew! you've made it sing.
Pleated booklets, that would be great...
It's interesting how changing a background makes the camera read a different color of your cherry leaf cloth. I LOVE that color! The top image makes me think of treacle toffee. The kind you can buy in Thorntons. MMMmmmmm! But let's not go there! I'm really looking forward to seeing how you new experiements shape up! :)
