Awfully Big Art Adventure - Fabric


I'm sure I read this as a fabric and stiching challenge - and I didn't notice the Arch bit ... sorry, since it took a while to make I thought I'd share it with you anyway and you can giggle and note that I will try and take all the info in!!LOL
The material is a piece of bandage so quite textued!This was after, (trial and error)misted the bandage first gave better results than misting with water after applying Adirondack colour wash. Abstract pattern free hand design.

Adirondack stream colour wash
Embroidery threads
Fabric flower, pearl bead, base card, peel off letters and acrylic butterflies from stash.
