Beryl here, been in the UK visiting family.

I've been experimenting again ! This time it's velvet, the dark kind, laid on top of batting and machined stitched eight rectangles. I then painted each rectangle with gesso then gold leaf, rubber stamped an Indian wood block image with acrylic paint in center of rectangle. Looking for a layering effect I found some fine polyester sheer which I laid over the leaf image then machine stitched around it in black thread. Still mulling over the next step !!

This is beautiful Beryl!


Thanks Carol, thought I'd try something different.
