Paola Zanda – P
P for Princess
For challenge P, I’ve chosen Princess. In our Church one fresco represent St. George saving the Princess Silene from the dragon. So, for this time, I’ve taken the visage of the Princess. Paolo, as usual, has taken the picture and printed it on fabric. For the background, I dyed and printed the fabric with Procion MX. The printed design wants to represent the real symbols. All the visage of the Princess is completely embroidered free motion with the machine and then applied. I embellished the crown and the dress with beads and sequins. The letters P is inserted in a floral decoration to give continuity to my series. The quilting is simply vertical to give the appearance of wallpaper.
