Well, not many of the materials I found made it into the final piece. There's a few of the fabrics, and two of the threads round the outside, but the paint, silk cocoons and Markel (Shiva) paintstik fell by the wayside. I couldn't dis-associate green from vegetation in my mind, so in the end I decided to just go for it. A suggestion of a leaf, made using reverse fused appliqué, a technique I had somehow never tried before. Very simple, but I just love the spiral shape.
