Embellisher background #1

art quilting

The colours in this one remind me of the Red Centre of Australia.

Onto tissue paper, I sketched the outline of an aboriginal carving that I have from a trip to Ayers Rock.

I had made the drawing too long so I pinned it to make it shorter.

Here it is taking shape.

The residual bits of tissue can be removed easily with some sticky tape.

Once the tissue has been removed I can get stuck into the stitching.

More stitching and a outline.

Some spirals finish it off.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
