Embellisher

I am way behind on my lessons for Dales embellishing class, I was determined to go and do some more samples last night and got sidetracked by a bag of stitched silk samples that started life being sewn onto a very large canvas, but my hands couldn't cope, so they got thrown in my silk bit box



I used a piece that had a padded heart in the centre, and started embellishing it to some wool/viscose felt, I just kept grabbing small scraps and tearing them to fit. I cut another stitched piece and that was embellished into the surface, I really like this effect, and plan on using the rest of the samples, in some smaller pieces, the one below is 16" x 12"
I have to say I so enjoyed making this, no planning, no thought just total play.

What a lovely piece Carol. I've not yet bought an embellisher but I just love looking at the pieces that others are making with it, there seem to be endless possibilities!

This is really beautiful, Carol , and the spontaneity shines through! I really like your use of pure white against the biscuit colour of the felt.
