I first painted the background with fabric paints. Then I used the punch machine , appliquéing  grass and herbs (wool, bits of fabrics) and I stuck the flowers and leaves with bondaweb. At last I secured the plants with free motion stitching.

Lovely use of fabric to shade the tulips and grasses. The color choices as opposites in the color wheel really give this piece a LOT of punch!!!

All the comments re: the beauty of this piece are right on-but what I love about it is the viewpoint! I am lying down amidst the beauty looking up at the sky. Amazing!
