More Indigo Samples

My second sample and interpretation using embroidery and beading embellishment for Indigo project inspired by illustrations taken from a Botanical book of dead rose centres.

Using Trapunto Techniques/applique, beading and a bit of embroidery for this 3rd sample. I am not really sure quite what to do with this sample, I don't really feel happy with the results and feel that it's still missing something......?

  1. Lovely samples...especially the second one.
    I see what you mean with the third...perhaps the two open spaces are a bit bare....you could consider filling them with French knots...( gold ones perhaps...if you are also using Gold)
    Have a look at the whole outside shape of the complete motif....it could have a simple machine or hand stitched outline around it to give it a more distinct and elaborate shape.
    Just a couple of thoughts...I am sure you will come up with the solution yourself but there will always be at least one that is not your favourite, and that is normal.
