The first of my funky tropical ornaments has arrived in from the finisher. It was great fun stitching A Collection of Designs’s Flamingo. Made for a wonderful stash buster. I opted to follow Marilyn’s lead and tried my hand at adding some accoutrements.
By stitching over the flowers painted on this bad boy’s shirt, with two shades of blue Splendor, I was able to attach Flower sequins using a different colour bead in each center. Sequins and beads all from Sundance.
It can be terrific fun to take liberties on a painted canvas, and the added touch of beads always enhances the look. Just remember to print a colour copy of the canvas before you start. Makes sequin placement so much easier.
