A stack of marbled fabric printed awhile ago kept calling me. I blogged about the process here, and here too. After many, many, and many more enjoyable evenings adding hand embroidery and bead embellishing......it's now finished.
This type of fabric can be challenging to work with. It's beautiful on its own, yet very busy.....so finding the right combination to 'incorporate' into the design....that doesn't compete with it requires patience....and perhaps 'unstitching' more than I'd like to admit! (click photo to enlarge)
