Flower with Beaded Center

Flower with Beaded Center
4" x 6"
 
I have just joined the FAT [Fiber Art Traders] so that I can make and trade post cards.  This is my first post card.  I altered a photo with paint, fabric markers and fabric crayons.  I then padded the petals in the same manner as I did for "Nine Patch in White".  The depth does not show much in the photo.  It is subtle, but it is a technique I want to explore in more little pieces of fiber art.

If you look closely, it is possible to see some raised petals and of course the mixture of colored beads.

I really like this and the size. Please tell what you mean when you wrote you altered a photo. The whole work is fabric, yes? Was the photo printed on the fabric or did you take inspiration from the photo?

I really like this piece. I am bead freak.

I printed the photo on fabric. Then I used fabric markers, fabric sticks and fabric paint to alter the background.
