Here is another example of "more is more", Quiltgranny's philosophy of life. This is "Phenomenal Woman", based on the poetry of Maya Angelou. Her hair is stitched with loose threads, beads, and snippets of fabric and roving on Sulky Solvy. Her dress was beaded before applique, and it lies three dimensionally with it's folds finished with tulle netting. She dances across the piece, shattering plates (Dresden) and swinging her tambourine to her own music and rules. The background is heavily seed stitched and the bottom edge is beaded with swinging beads.
I had so much fun with this piece, I didn't want it to end.
