So, this is my Dandelion and Daisies.
The dandelion in the center is my painted applique. I painted it directly on to the background fabric. The leaves were also colored with the colored pencils, but were done on a different fabric, then appliqued down. It was a challenge because the flower was on the background and I wanted the leaves to look like they were behind the dandelion. I was able to make it work. I pieced the the partial border to fulfill the pieced requirement. The dragonfly was embellished with beads for eyes and the end of the antenna. I also added ceramic hedgehog buttons (thanks, Trish!) and the dandelion fluff is made from Angelina fibers. A shout out to Frieda Anderson and her book, Fun, Fast Fusies, which is where I found the dandelion design.
