This is similiar to your blog header. Is that a silk slashing, too? Are you the slasher of the silk?

this is the original photo of the slashed silk.

the header was the same photo...inverted, manipulated and cropped in photoshop.

i am the slasher of silk, and a major manipulator of fabric...more on my flickr link, and in previous months' posts.

Thanks for the answer, slasher/manipulator.

This is really beautiful. I use a lot of silk in crazyquilting. Many crazyquilters manipulate and create fabrics. This is right up my alley.

thanks.
at some point i will post a tutorial on printing silk.

the slashing involves stabilizing the silk, sharp blades and a vague plan.

like seashells and fingerprints, the variations are infinite.

i love fabric...it's genetic...some links in my burlap-chiffon-fishnet category.
