Endless Mystery - Part III
A couple of days have been spent stitching down the ferns, shrubs, and padding the tree trunks. Here is how I construct the ferns first onto a piece of parchment paper. The leaves are all prepared ahead of time and ready to apply. I was quite struck by the abstract energy of the rows of leaves and am planning to do this deliberately one day. Love how those colours look together.
This is the whole piece with the ferns stitched down. Still more stitching to do on the shrubs.
And here is a close-up. The trees have more dimension now with 2 more layers of batting.
