All That Jazz Day 5


All That Jazz Day 5
Originally uploaded by Kitty And Me.
I made some significant progress on this block last night. I painted the instruments and tiny notes with an 18 ct. gold leaf pen and attached them last night. I handpainted the floral applique which is supposed to represent a magnolia branch (I know, they look more like apple blossoms) and I sewed that on and started beading the centers. The bottom two flowers aren't attached yet because I still have to decide on what to do with that seam. Once I figure out what I'm going to do with it, then I'll attach the bottom portion of the applique. I also added the gold braid at the top left. It doesn't show well here, but it's very sparkly and I felt it needed something gold to balance out the gold from the instruments.

Wow!!! It's coming along nicely. The gold paint on the instruments really makes them pop!
