Silk Fusion

Silk Fusion, also known as Silk Paper, is an exciting new creative process.
This unique method bonds silk fibres into a lustrous kind of "felt" which can be gossamer and transparent or thick and opaque as leather. Because the fibres are unspun, silk's rich lustre and texture are captured.
Silk fusion is a perfect canvas for hand or machine stitching, printing, stamping, origami, quilting, jewellery, wearable art, book coverings, collage and on and on.  excerpt from:
Love this medium.....Results of my workshop with Donna Crispin at the Paper Arts Festival in Newport, Oregon.   It was blast and oh I have ideas for these results!!!!

A fabulous felting day.....

This is a new way I tried today with the wool.  I have soooo much odds and ends....I grabbed a bunch and laid it out randomly, then added some silk and felted the whole thing and designed the hat.  I was shooting for the inside to be the outside but it was not meant to be so the inside peaks out in places and is a perfect accent to the magnificent color blend I achieved.  I am a Happy Wildwoman

LOVE CHILD Poncho and more....

India cotton gauze nuno felted and embellished with sari silk ribbon.... It slips over the head as a poncho....or over the hips as a short wrap for leggings......The waistband has ties to adjust larger or smaller.....A Rosiewildwoman original creation.....

The Scarf that Rebelled

The Scarf.....carded merino wool nuno felted on silk chiffon.  I must have draped this a million times before I took the picture.  EAch time....I hated it.....It is short, that's ok, it is lighter than any work I have done....Thank is felted tightly.... nice.....but no how, no way could I get it to lay the way I wanted it to....In exasperation.....I twisted and turned it and pinned it with a custom pin I felted and plopped it on my head.....

 Voila.....the Scarf that Rebelled and Became a Rosiewildwoman creation for the head......

Continuing the Ocean Blue theme

Rosiewildwoman doing the Happy Dance

Will be posting a video of Rosiewildwoman doing the happy dance.....I finally understand laying the wool down fine and then the material on top in layers, adding tencel, adding bamboo, adding the kitchen sink and then felting into incredible thin texture......I see soooooooo many possibilities with this, hats, scarves, wraps, vests, ponchos, wall hangings.......and the list goes on......

just the beginning of a beautiful relationship

buried glass pin closure

texture, texture, everywhere.....

light not my usual heavy laying down because I can not see....I had this same problem(not being able to see) with glass torching until I let it be what it wanted to be which definitely was not "a round bead"  With the wool, the truth of myself came when I dared to not see......the light laying of the wool and just knowing it was there.....sort of like my faith in God, salvation and eternal life......
