Also created in 2012 as part of my 52 weeks of art, this is the 9th in my series that I call Translucent Layering. Again, I designed the layout of the piece in Photoshop Elements. The ‘lowest’ background layer is a commercial batik with a chiffon overlay fused on top. It has a stitched and painted swirl design as well as adding some couched yarn in a swirl pattern. The butterfly was printed to fabric, appliqued and free motion stitched. I also added some tiny silk flowers that I removed from the stems and stitched on top.
