Adding Paper

The whole purpose of this embroidery course, is to push the boundaries, so now, paper has been added to a piece of hand embroidered cloth.

This is silk paper that has been machine embroidered, and then embellished by hand.

The paper was carefully cut out around the machine embroidered flowers and then very gently stitched to the cloth.  To do that. I've used a mixture of french knots, blanket stitch, bullion knots and blanket stitch lace.
