Embellishment

This fortnight's challenge from stitch club is with Kate Tume and embellishment. She makes amazing art covered in beads and stitch. I have chosen the topic biodiversity for my subject matter and have made a background to embellish from dyed sheep 's wool slivers. I have teased out the slivers onto a woven base, covered them with solve and roughly free machined over the entire area, then washed away the solvy. Above is the substrate I am left with. Now I am ready to embellish. I need to wait for the base to dry now before I add beads and other bits and pieces
