Second textile book

This is a zigzag book  that can also become a hanging if hung from the closing ring.

I love poppies and my garden is always full of them, so I took this as my theme, from buds to seed through the year.

The image on the left shows the first three pages, that on the right the final three.  Each page has at least four layers including the central spine that runs through the whole book and are all my own hand dyed fabrics.  I used a series of techniques – in order: mono print, collagraph, appliqué, a paper napkin, another mono print, and a photo transfer.  I had difficulty photographing this last image because of reflection, hence the white marks.  Then added the pieces of text and embellished with beads.
