honesty collage experiments

here is a series of textile experiments where I have been stitching dried honesty seed heads to cotton satin fabric

honesty-1

I used just 2 colours initially, adding a backstitched seed head outline

honesty-2

in the final piece I changed the seed head to a more muted tone

honesty-3

what I liked about these pieces was that the shape of the honesty sprig I used was different each time, so the design is always in response to the natural form.
