Silk Paper -- Experiments with Color and Embellishment

I have been super busy the past month, mastering the silk paper techniques and pushing this art form even farther than the work I've seen so far. For this posting I am going to show you a few; because of time you can see my entire collection on my ArtFire store (which I am currently populating as well).

White silk hankies with multicolored silk flowers (flowers I cut out of silk I dyed) trapped within the layers and also attached on the inside and outside with a bead each.
