Subtle is very rarely part of my vocabulary. I like it when I see it, but I sure can’t produce it! I think I may have done it this time.
The leaves were stamped–yes, using actual gingko leaves and metallic paint. I have a couple other ones, too, that will be coming up soon. I would like to keep them all simple and subtle…good luck to me! Oh, yes, I have shown them to you before.
Simply mounted on a neutral background, beaded with only a single bead color. My question is adding beads around the black, after the leaves have been done.
A line on the black…
or a line on the neutral…
Turns out that my subconsious made the decision before I even recognized the question. My needle only let me add the beads in a little picot on the beige fabric.
And I’m hoping that I can actually call this one subtle—and mean it!
Does it need any quilting?
