Salt Marsh

Last week at the Sun & Sea EGA retreat, I took this class from Laura Smith.  I took the class because the techniques were all new to me.  First, we painted on stretched silk.  Then we did free motion machine embroidery to form the grasses.  Finally we finished with hand stitched highlights.   My first try isn’t perfect, but I really enjoyed learning the new techniques, and it has given me ideas on some different ways of using the silk painting and a mixture of machine and hand embroidery.
