Oh wow! I love that!! I might have to bookmark your blog and try that out for myself.
If you, Smmarrt, or anyone is interested, when I am done my workshops, I will see how my pieces turn out, post them, as well as the notes I took, and the resources she suggested. Someone also gave me a site for doing something similar with paper too and I will check that out too.
How cute would a piece done with strawberry leaves, raspberry leaves, or whatever, with embroidered leaves be? Or dyed foliage, and embroidered birds or butterflies? I want to try it with my bright red burning bush leaves - I wonder if those would work?
