here and I remembered this piece of mine in which the background was coloured with transfer paints which had been overprinted with foliage masks. Strangely enough the fabric is a faux satin which Judy is also using.
I bonded some snippets of silk fabric onto the satin using bonding powder and then stitched into it with hand and machine embroidery. It is now waiting to be framed ready for my exhibition in July. More info at http://patashton-smith.co.uk/?cat=5
