I knew I wanted to use all white and clear bead, sequins and purls. The idea was a white on white embroidery.
After some research [on the net and some of my embroidery design collection] I came up with this sketch.
I trace the sketch to silk organza, got my frame out and went to work.
While making the sampler I realized I did not like the design. It was not giving me the “feeling” I was looking for… back to the drawing table I went. When I was happy with the drawing, I took it over to the frame and with a dressmaker pencil I traced it over the old design.
The little petals that are free standing on the side are going to be cut-out and appliqué over some of the flowers.This pic shows the embroidery almost done, I like the way it is coming out.
So far I have used;
Sequins- white and iridescent white size 2mm
Bugle beads-white and iridescent white size 2
Seed beads- white
Rhinestones- Square sew on Crystal Swarovski
