Under my Umbrella


Again the main image is an ice resin piece.  As you can see there is a bit of white still left on it, that's where I haven't quite covered it properly.  As it was my first attempt with it I think it's ok.  The image is suspended in the frame and attached with the buttons!!!  The buttons are attached to the image and the felt.  The felt is wrapped round the wire frame and sewn with embroidery thread.  The backing materials, duck egg scrim, chocolate tulle and burgandy felt were all attached with the buttons.  Using my craft tool I melted the edges and burnished a few holes!!!!
