2nd stage Faded Sapphires……………

Detail motif 2nd stage

Making progress now and I’m happy with the dimensional effect the appliqued leaves have given, a 2nd placement at the side to balance things and a token few at the base.

Next I’m thinking of a stuffed binding for the sides to keep it soft and blurry with this lovely misty fabric which has a really shiny lustrous finish – torn between the two effects but think the matt with just a sheen is the right choice  for it.

Then I’m going to experiment with an idea I have for the bottom ‘fringe'(for want of a better word) and the treatment for the sides.   Watch this space………………………………
