I have being sewing repeated images into  pieces of canvas which I painted and have being overlapping them to give a slight distorted feel to them.  For the first piece of canvas I have sewn crows using black thread and varied the size of them. In the second piece I used coloured threads which brightens up the work. I have also shown the back of the canvas displaying the threads as I find this interesting also and makes me think of quick rough sketches of the flower. I like the contrast  between the mixed media background and embrodiery on top.
