Silk Paper Collage

5 Comments

Now that I’ve made approximately 100 sheets of paper silk I’m working on ways to use them. One is mixed media collage using a combination of silk paper sheets, paper and vintage silk flowers.  I’ve also cut some up for ATC’s (Artist Trading Cards) and used some small sections on greeting cards.

As I make and dry the sheets I’ve noticed how nice certain colors look against other colors.  It’s inspiring some interesting combinations.

  1. such a romantic, nostalgic piece, Theresa! And I’m *crazy* about that marigold color combined with the magenta – striking! Are those strings just put into the ‘paper’ mixture, or have you stitched through the silk paper with embroidery stitching? It’s all very intriguing!

  2. Lovely layering. You have a lot of work ahead of you. Can’t wait to see the progress!

  3. gorgeous Theresa!! And like Tristan I love that bright yellow and magenta combo:)

  4. I am totally and absolutely in love with your artwork and processes! You have simply made Gorgeous out of already beautiful and have taken it all to such a glorious new mixed media level! (can you tell I am a fan?)
    Great art Theresa!

    ps..I agree with the others above- love the color combo!
