Tissue Text

I've been up at the studio today, working on some experiments with tissue and text.
I've stuck some black perle cotton onto a piece of white tissue, forming words with the cotton.
It's very faffy; but the effect is of delicate and swirling lines.

I'll take some photos when I'm a little further along, to give an idea of what it all looks like.
I'm not sure whether to mount it up into a frame when it's completed or create a book from the tissue pieces.
My first idea was to make a book; but of course now it's taking form, I'm able to see how it might work mounted up.
Still undecided as yet.
