Cherry Blossoms is a fabric collage, designed from a photo taken by my stepbrother, on a spring day in China.
The flowers are created with raw silk in pink, white, lavender, magenta, sage, and green. The background is pieced from cotton fabrics. I used a fused applique method, satin stitched with embroidery thread, and variegated cotton threads in pink, magenta and lavender. The background is thread-painted with cyan and teal variegated cotton thread.
The border is raw silk in goldenrod, gallery wrapped on a stretched canvas frame. Wired for hanging.
