Eco Dyed silk background, embroidered leaf print, black acrylic worm holes.
Channeling autumn splendor a little early, but it is one of my favorite times of the year. This month’s theme for Arts in the Cards was leaves. I was going to do paper abstracts using leaves from antique books I keep for mixed media. But since our bathroom remodel meant everything was stuffed in the studio, I haven’t been able to find a thing since the bath was reassembled! I went through every box and drawer that could possibly have the books and they were no place to be found.
So, like I often do, I switched gears and created a new design for my cards. They will be mailed to the traders encased in an onion skin paper envelope that was made from paper that had been sandwiched between pieces of silk being eco printed.
