After finishing the remember piece, I took the doodling a step further and stitched leaves on this girlâ€™s face after stitching â€˜bloomâ€™ across the face.
The background uses two different fabrics, both with butterflies, one with additional text elements. I colored the hair, leaves and shirt with pigment pens.
Bloom (8.5â€ x 13â€)
I really like this piece even with the muted/mottled fabrics as the background, but I want to try this again with lighter/whiter fabrics as the background. I think the lighter/whiter fabrics will convey the happiness of this piece better.
