The machine quilting is a lot denser than I would normally do. I've named it Fantasy Garden which has seemed to give me license to really go at it. I did leaves on the right hand and top border.
Then I added bubbles with a hollow shimmer thread and, on a whim, I added some shimmer paint to the bubbles.
I also added paint to the fronds that I machine stitched yesterday. The only thing I noticed is the texture of the lines in the fronds where the fabric rippled a bit form the quilting. I'm not sure if I like it so once it sets, I'll iron it and decide if I should paint them out.
I'm linking to the WIP Wednesday at The Needle and Thread Network.
