This module is based on the design source of a butterfly and the photo below shows my artwork which is done in watercolour pencils.
The next stage was to paint silk in the colours of our butterfly - as you can probably see I painted in a circular design to get the effect shown in the next photo. I also put salt on the painting to give the grainy effect.
The shape of the butterfly was bondawebbed onto a calico backing and then covered with organza. The shape was outlined and highlighted with hand backstitches in gold thread.
This was not one of my favourite samples but I can see how its use could enhance pieces such as wallhangings - not one for the bed quilts though!
