Floral Applique

DSC05663

This is just a trial piece as I wanted to use the pieces of ‘wallpaper printed’ fabric for some applique petals and leaves, so I composed this simple design to try out the idea. I have added some plain fabric into the mix, coloured silks and a little bit of a fancy synthetic. Other than that, the main flowers and leaves are in the printed fabric, bonded to the linen background with sketchy stitching on top. My aim is to print more wallpaper fabric but give more consideration to the colours so I can compose some more of these stylised applique pictures with a coastal theme.
