What are you most proud of? I am most pleased that the flowers seem to glow, as if a bright light was projected on them. Perhaps the dark solid background added to this illusion. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would suggest you research the "broidery perse' type of applique and study examples you run across. Don't be afraid to re-position flowers to create the illusion of movement. It might help to look at floral arrangements to see how to make a pleasing 'bouquet'.
