More with papers

Another piece of silk paper from the W/S. It was manipulated while wet with a satay stick to make holes, then when dry I pushed some hot pink nylon fabric through the holes & stitched around them. Detail below.

While I was in paper mode, I made some with paper towels which had been used to mop up dispersal dye and then used again to heat transfer a design onto fabric. After all that, they still make interesting paper! They are stiff from the PVA glue but can still be printed & stitched.
Above: (right) made from the unravelled threads you get when machine washing dyed fabrics. I have a collection of these, so while I was working with glue I made a grid like fabric with some.
