On The Edge

And here is another piece I completed last week.  A friend gave me a ton of handmade papers that she had brought home from Thailand (thank you Lorraine!), and I decided to tear them into strips and "dye" the strips with fluid acrylics, inks, and dyes.  The horizontal strips are those papers.  The vertical strips are some handmade tissue papers I created a couple of years ago.

Gluing them to the substrate was tricky because of the weave effect, but I managed to do it without getting too messy.  I love the white frame and the white space between the strips.  It almost tells a story of its own. It feels to me that the edges of the strips is the important part here, and thus the name.
