Hummingbirds

HummingbirdsThis piece I have a little of a Love/Hate feeling about.  I love how it turned out, but it took a few false starts to get it to where I was happy with it.  I Love the color combinations,  I wanted it to be bright, sunny, happy,  summer feel to it.  I used mostly hand marbled fabric for the hummingbirds, hand dyed and batiks for the background.  I tried several white fabrics for the white flowers.  Finally decided to use a white ultra suede.  At first I stitched on it with white thread and really reminded me of an exploded marshmallow.  Think of the original Ghostbusters movie and the big marshmallow guy that get blown up at the end.  Not really the look I was going for.  I Then re-stitched using a black variegated thread and added some embroidered flower centers and that took me to where I wanted to go.  It just makes me happe to look at it.  And yes I sell the pattern on my website.  Come visit!  www.marbled-arts.com
