At first my heart sank when the colour was unveiled .... I very seldom work in these colours. A walk around a dam while on holiday in the Drakensberg in November gave me my inspiration - little mushrooms growing out of the bark of a very damp and dark tree. They are not as sandy coloured as they should be in the photograph but you can see a smidgen. I had great fun in the end and do love it.
I used Lutradur 'Crush' which I bought at FOQ's last year .....
The green embroidery was added at this stage.
I then drew the mushrooms onto white cloth and free motion embroidered them ....cut them out and stitched onto background cloth of fabric and crush. Paint sticks were also used.
