Embroidered Textile detail, achieved by using both machine embroidery with layers of distressed Lutrador and metal organza.
Burning and Distressed
I have used a combination of various layers of handpainted lutrador using both dyes and acrylic ink , which i embellished with both machine embroidery and tiny glass beads. Each layer of fabric was then heat distressed to create a lace like qaulity and a more 3 dimesional feel of this butterfly dancing a cross the summer hedgerows.
As the sea tide gradually recedes, unveiled are tiny rock pools filled with shells and seaweed. I have used a gutta outliner as well embroidery with metallic threads to capture the last light of the evening on these delicate little shells.
