Rain forest canopy

I made this piece using the techniques from a Rose Hughes class. It is taken from a picture of a rain forest from above. It is raw edge applique with all seams covered with trim then hand stitched and beaded. Fun to do and very different for me as I never do hand work if I can help it. It measures 23 1/2 x 29 1/2

Nice!I am drawn to the spot of color in the center..I am imagining being on high and looking down into that spot..
the hand work really adds texture.

The colors on this piece are scrumptious! I also appreciate your use of shape and the innovative way of covering the seams. Sometimes the hand work can be very soothing and relaxing. This is a very nice piece.

Your beading is exquisite and rich for this piece. Your transparencies in your objects are well done. You have some great earth tones.
