The back gournd is created by carefully stitching strips of waving fabrics (13 different fabrics to be exact) sewn horizontally and then top stitched after being slightly gathered, pressed and ruched.
The eggs lie in a soft bed of fabric and silk threads all top stitched and embellised with antique flowers
The water plant is created with real silk flowers folded and top stitched
The head is a beak of three red fabric and 2 black fabrics and embellished with top stitching.
glass beads are added to her face and a blue tear to create the illusion of water.
.I created this on my brother sewing machine but OHHH the things I could do with my "Dream Machine" a Bernina!
I hope you enjoy and look forward to comments and ways to improve
