The box includes step by step instructions and video tutorials. Inspirational images and materials. Also included is one piece of ready coloured rag paper which you can use as a practice piece before creating your own compositions.

The box also includes information and a variety of images enabling you to improve the way you see and depict a range of flower and foliage forms.

You will work on rag paper, using bleeding tissue in a controlled way to create lines and blocks of colour. Transfer foils are used to add highlights and yarns are couched in place.  These add texture and shimmer.  Free machine embroidery and couching cords add detail and definition before beads are sewn in place to complete the composition.

The individual compositions could be individually mounted in 15cm aperture box frames or mounted as a group in a larger frame.

Please allow a two week turnaround from time of purchase.  Once the project box is booked I will send you three short video tutorials that accompany the project.
