Spiral Embroidered Panel
Here are some closeups of my Spiral Embroidered Panel as promised Mamarox. I took it out of the frame as there were too many reflections, but it was no problem and can be returned to it's frame quite easily.Again this was inspired by the Cannes wrought iron gate and designed using Corel Photopaint this time. There is no print transfer involved in this one. I used two stretchy velvet pieces of fabric, one in black, the other off-white. I used transfer paints to colour the white piece in peach and pale blue colours. I digitized the spirals in the Artista Software individually and as the finished piece is about 14"x21" they had to be stitched in sections and then joined together. They were then overstitched with free machining to bring it all together, there is quite a lot of free stitching in it and the off white velvet blended in well with the black eventually.
