I added the braided ribbon around the image of the girl. I haven't stitched down the lace flowers yet. I just pinned them on to see if I had the placement right. It is not quite right so I will play with that a bit before stitching.
Sharon B at http://pintangle.com/ is hosting this work in progress Wednesday. I really appreciate it as it is definitely helping me to make progress.
As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
