As promised in my last blog here is the update …… After working with the tweed and silk velvet earlier this week I am now well and truly addicted to these.
I have continued with the heart theme to produce a trio of completed pictures that I would like to share with you. (please excuse my shadow in the photographs- if anyone can advise me on how to photograph framed work behind glass I would appreciate the advice)
Here are some close ups
Heart in Heart
Of course I am always drawn back to flowers – so here are my flower interpretations of this technique. Again I have used a combination of tweed/wool and silk velvet fabrics with free machine embroidery and hand embroidery. Both have been embellished with buttons and I have added an eyelet charm on ‘Double Bloom’
In the Breeze
I hope you like these – I am off to find some more tweed and silk velvet 🙂
