As you can see, I am continuing to work on this small piece. I fused a paper backed adhesive to the lace and then fused it to the background. It worked but I was certainly glad I used a non-stick pressing sheet because the openness of the lace left a lot of room for the adhesive to come through.
I started cutting small leaves from a hand-dyed silk. The color seems to work well and give a soft look. Will the leaves have a glow against the morning sky?
