White/cream and White/beige from Arlee
These were difficult colours for me to work with also as i usually do deep and dramatic or in-your-face :} They were quite a learning curve for me because of this.
Sara's is made from some of my leftover "fabric paper"--i handpainted with Lumiere the leaves and vines, then added sequins held by beads to each square, increasing the number per square and co-ordinating the colourways chosen by the group i'm. The eighth square has "wild card" colours: tiny stripey beads, and the ninth has gold for her to thank her for inspiring us all!
On Beate's, i did a hand sewn void(hole) on one and pin tucked the entire base fabric before i started embellishing. There's handstitching, silk leaves, buttons, bundled threads and scrunched lace. I left one square plain to show off the simplicity of the colour and tucks.
