Made of over 100 pieces of fabric. I machine stitched them to the cotton canvas with free-motion embroidery. The star shapes are meant to be a pattern of floating seeds. The silhouettes are mainly machine stitched, but the tips are hand embroidered with tiny French knots with a single thread of floss. There are small gold stitches scattered around the background, that don't really show here. The colours may seem a bit unreal, but I have seen these colours in nature.
