Mixed Media Monday - Embellish It

I have to admit to a little self indulgence when I chose the theme for this week's Mixed Media Monday challenge. I wanted an opportunity to use some of the beautiful laces painted by my daughter Danni - they are just so beautiful. My piece is worked on a sweet little 15x15 cm or 6x6 in canvas with different fabrics and silks. The image is an image transfer onto fabric and it looks better in real life - it didn't photograph all that well. Then of course the gorgeous laces give it a rich, delicious finishing touch - well, actually, they are what makes the piece! The good news is that Danni has given me some of the dyes - so I'm going to have a go at dyeing some myself one day soon :-)
