Something Blue

Art Creations Friday provided this stunning image

Over the weekend I made sure I found the time to work with this image. After preparing various pieces of lace and curtain net with dyes of tea and coffee I set to work layering the pieces. The base (panel cut from curtain net) was left without a backing. For the photograph I laid it against white curtain net.
Detail of this beautiful image
Other than the dyed pieces I added
a peach lace applique, ribbon slide, flower and blue ribbon (symbolising “something blue”, possibly from her garter!!).

    Just perfect! All those yummy layers of lace and the tea and coffee dyes give such wonderful colour to them. My piece this week is inspired by your style, my friend. Wonder what you’ll think…….

    Hi Lynne
    You have made quite a few ‘pretty little things’ lately, all gorgeous, as ever. My favourite is the square necklace with the pearl dangles.
    Have a great day
