Beautiful Book Covers


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Following last weeks highly successful silk painting session Liz, Mandy, Paula and Linda with the addition of Jade all came back yesterday to use their painted silk pieces to make these beautiful book covers. If you remember last week I shared pics of the class painting their silk; some traced trees butterflies and dragonflies using Gutta and they all had a bash at dropping paint onto wet silk and scattered it with sea salt creating beautiful patterns which students had not control over. Today they have used the randomly patterned silk and embellished it with french knots, beads and other gorgeous embroidery stitches before turning the pieces into book covers. We had a lovely day, loads of giggles, good company, tea and coffee…heaven
