To answer some recent questions about Peaceblossom for those who are interested.
Firstly I must say - this is only the 2nd time I have used green in my art work and right now I am torn as to whether I like it - I think I do.
The costume is one of the 7 costumes I am making for the fairies in Mid Summer Night's Dream. It will be a tutu style outfit with the bodice background stitched (go here to see the printing stage) then covered with leaves, tendrils, flowers and pods- which I have been showing you.
I have so far completed 65 large leaves, there is a pile of smaller ones to go. - I don't know how many more I will need I am just making them until the pile looks good and then I will make more once I start to assemble them on the bodice.
I have 9 large flowers completed so far, 2 small ones - again there are piles to go yet.
I have 5 pods done - not sure how many more.
I have yet to decide on how the 'skirt' part will be made - could be sweet pea colours - could be greens.
I may not show you any more for a while as the next phase is really more of hte same and that would be boring you.
I am also working on my Oberon costume at the same time - but this is more in the 'thinking' stage.
Any questions - happy to answer them.
