I wanted to take my honesty etching and rework the image in different ways and this is what I'm doing with it.
The background fabric is fine Japanese linen, from Ebay, and I used some slubby silk for the papery pods, and button-hole and tiny running stitch on the machine to embellish it. I tried padding the pod third from the bottom on the left with some tiny shapes to give the hint of seeds in the pod, but didn't pad it enough - you can only see it if you look VERY closely. It's not finished - I definitely feel it needs something else - but I don't want to overdo it, so I'm still trying to decide where to go from here.
I love it as it is xxReplyDelete
