Playing with Scrim

This is a technique that needs a little more practise, and some more scrim!  Warp threads were removed, then stitched on the machine to form "lace".   It's quite interesting to see the different ways it pulls together, and the different patterns that form, so I'm looking forward to trying this again.
This next piece is adding a few elements together.  The lace at the top is attached with a strip of french knots.  Behind the scrim is a vintage transfer on silk.  

Top and bottom, the scrim has been needle woven, and I think this is one of my favourite techniques from this class. I love the effect it gives.  The bottom piece of scrim has nothing behind it, so the full effect can be seen. The lace in the middle is joined with bullion knots and the scrim at the bottom has been finished with buttonhole stitch and buttonhole lace.
