This one was a struggle from beginning to end.....but I'm so happy I stuck with it.  As I mentioned in previous posts, marbleized fabric has a lot of energy when working in a wholecloth format.  Finding just the right bead and hand embroidery techniques to further enhance the design required some false starts  which will make the next one I tackle easier!

So are those tiny beads out in the black border? Such an effective resolution. This came out so well. Hopefully I will do justice to the piece of this marbling you sent - it arrived today. Thanks! The camera did not lie - it looks just like I thought it would.

Yes, there are beads on the border. Sorry for the poor photo....due to lack of decent lighting for photographing.
