It's interesting how a fresh set of eyes can help to tweak one's work.....even AFTER it's finished.
Though there are numerous techniques applied to the piece, the single rose may be just a bit lonely.......yielding a composition that could use improvement.
Heirloom Blush 8" x 12"
Artist hand-dyed felted wool, hand dyed gauze, hand applique, hand embroidery, & featuring extensive beadwork.
Even though it's difficult to add motifs to a piece that's completed......I charged ahead and added a secondary motif which helps to avoid the 'bullseye' of the original rose.
