Let me take you through the piece
Close up of peacock’s head. I used the padded satin technique that I used on the gold scrolls to differentiate the head from the body
The plume. The are 6 different fibers , Threadworxs overdye Kreinik, SIlk Lame Braid, Waterlilies and Painters Palette.
And i had to throw in a few real gold beads!
Close up of stretchy flair technique. A blog is coming soon on that.
A close look at the border. This is a Herringbone stitch using Firewerks. I think that is my favorite thread. But so hard to choose!
Details of the corner. I’ve always wanted to use the Norwich stitch and have never had a canvas that it fit on.
The “goldwork” is done in padded satin
I can’t WAIT to start my next piece. Rebecca, Melissa or Ewe & Eye. Stay tuned . . .
