Patterns Fit For A Princess
This is my latest ACEO which was created in response to Etsy Creative Challenge #55 to create something inspired by the wedding of the daughter of the Sultan of Brunei.
You can view some of the photos here.
I was so inspired by all the different patterns I saw--from the couple's polka dot
clothing to the ironwork spirals of the lamp posts. I decided to do a needle punch embroidery using as many of the patterns as I could. The top portion represents the spirals, the right is a portion of the canopy with a crescent moon pattern, the bottom is a black lace motif decorated with pearls & red seed beads (had to get some beads in there lol!) and the left obviously the polka dots. The yellow diagonal represents the groom's sash.
This little piece of art measures the standard 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" and will be available shortly in my etsy shop.
Have a wonderful day!
