Look at how layers of tulle over any fabric can simulate shadows. I used three layers of brown tulle under the rock bridge and on the rock wall. You can still see the rock print but it is definitely in shadow.
where things turned ugly. The 15 denier sheer fabric that I thought would be perfect, turned out to have a bad attitude when it came to manipulation. So I did what I had to do...
In the meantime, check out the flowers , grasses and bushes on the left side. They will add a three- dimensional aspect to the piece. The bushes are made with bits of firings, shown on the right.
So now I am feeling better about the whole thing .
Tomorrow thank goodness...I return to teaching. We are sewing swimsuits with a free floating bra built inside...nothing artistic about that..just precision sewing! Now I am happy!
