More mixed media textiles

Lots of thread was used in this one! It's about 70cm long - "a sleep and a forgetting". The print-out of letters was sanded down and torn up, then sprayed with water and dabbed with Quink, from which the orange migrated faster than the blue, leading to the multi-coloured effect. I picked up the colours with various variegated rayon threads, and some sparkly muted ones - it got rather more colourful than I intended.
Hours of free-machining pleasure.
