The figure is water color pencil on silk, quilted and sewn on stiff backing.
Materials: size 10 & 11 Czech beads, pressed glass leaves, garnet beads.
The beaded area is three and a half by five and a half inches.
The piece is sewn like a thin pillow - with the entire beaded area backed with a second piece of quilt stuffing material and sewn around the edges to a backing. This gives the picture a curved, 3 dimensional look.
This was really fun to do - especially in the sense of solving creative problems. Click to enlarge
