It was my turn to pick the color scheme, so I picked one of my favorites-Triad-3 more of less equally separated colors on the color wheel.
First, I wanted to try my BigShot cutting machine and did the ovals. I liked the negative space so much that I used those shapes too. Of course, Blogger put it on it's side and I don't have the time to mess with it today. The blue violet background is a sparkly cotton commercial fabric I bought when I was in Houston. The yellow green and red orange are hand dyes. They are stitch with perle cotton.
The piece seems a bit weird to me, so I did a second one more in my style. It, too, is on it's side-not my day.
The background is a hand painted piece of cotton that I also stamped leaves on. Then I couched the fuzzy yarn and applied the silk leaves using seed and bugle beads.
