I began with a photo taken near my home, printed it on photo canvas, thread painted the balsam and fence post. I made a balsam applique to bring the flowers off the canvas onto the background. The background fabrics are my hand dyes layered over a second white fabric, layered over cotton batting, and all stretched over the artist's frame. I am having fun now!!!
Some closeups of this photo/thread play method were requested on another forum, so here you go!
