Well...here we are in 2016!! And that finds me finishing a previously started small piece of wall art.The inspiration was this piece of deconstructed screen printed silk noil.
After isolating a section that would best coordinate with this interesting blue agate slice....the stabilized fabric was fitted into a Q-Snap frame. Beading in a frame provides ample support for this heavy object and it helps avoid fabric distortion during that process.
The beads are stitched in a specific pattern that creates a cage which holds the agate in position. The hole in the slice is simply too tempting......it is screaming for attention. Do come back tomorrow to see how it is enhanced.
