Here's what I did:
gathered together assorted yarns; base 8x8 grey felt
assorted scraps of silk, cotton and blends; each piece felted to top, then turned to back and felted slightly
layers are building up - I like the way silk scrunches up
addition of polyester sheer - this looks really cool
addition of assorted yarns and painted cheesecloth
The background reminded me of an underwater scene. Using my sewing machine, I free motion stitched a fish; enhanced with acrylic ink. The finished piece measures 6.5x6.5.
