Using painted and dyed backgrounds, and hand and machine embroidery, this guide presents a wonderful variety of 3-D landscape and flower embroideries. A number of techniques are employed when applying colour to the fabric including batik, salt discharge and brushing dye into a wet surface. Beautiful pictures are then stitched and built up over the background in easy stages. The feeling of perspective is enhanced by the clever use of scale and colour, and all the techniques are explained clearly and demonstrated in a series of stunning projects. This original book is packed with practical advice and information. Anyone interested in pattern, texture and colour will discover a wealth of inspiration when they work through the projects. Gilda's highly individual designs will encourage beginners and more experienced embroiderers to create their own embroidered flower designs.
