Poppy Silks

For the second version of the Tissue Paper Poppy I am using the silk carrier rods which I used in the pieces which I showed in my first postings. This time I have dyed the silk with acrylics and fabric paints, just touching the silk with iridescent tinting medium in places to add some sparkle.

I fixed the silk strips in place with a machine pattern after stripping the layers apart and ironing flat. This will then form the basis for hand stitching. I have used these silk strips quite a lot now as they are so tactile.
I wonder in what ways other people are using them.
