Greetje Hein – Entrance – Smell the flowers
“Smell the flowers”
This design is in my head for years. A garden with a wrought iron gate. So when this subject came I immediate knew what to do.
The sky is my first piece of snow-dyed fabric. The flowers are done with a embellisher. I used batik fabrics on a batik background. Just the centre of the flowers are connected which gives a 3-dimensional effect.
For the trees are I used the method I learned from Susan Dahlberg: small pieces of embroidery thread kept in place with organza.
The gate is stitched on lutrador, then cut with a burning tool. I connected it on a few places to the background so it keeps the 3-dimensional effect.
