Starting Over


I did not like my original June page project so
I cut it apart and started over. I worked on it
all morning.
I kept the pansy but redid the background and
used 6 x 8 Lacy's Stiff Stuff Beading Foundation
on the back with fusible.
I picked out the colors of lucite flower and leaf
to match the beaded pansy for corners. It looks
Victorian. They are not heavy and the fusible
gives more support. The project is about 25
hours.
I am very glad that I started over and tomorrow
I am hoping to start my July page project. I will
use the same size of beaded flowers and 6 x 8
fabric.

Your June Page is beautiful, the pansy looks very life like and I think the flowers and leaves do add a feeling of victorian to the piece.

Yes, this is a good change... the pansy looked lonely in the first version... now it looks happy. Good decision!

I like the changes you made and it does indeed have quite a Victorian feel to it. You stitched that pansy beautifully!

Very nice. I like the changes you made. It has a 'complete' look to it now -- and very lovely.

Oh, I hate having to start all over... When I make mistakes, I just bead right over them. LOL.

I really like this piece! I love the way you framed the pansy with the flowers. It added depth and texture to the finish it nicely.
Cheers, Denise

I really like the new and improved version of your pansy. It not only looks more finished but neater too if that makes sense.
