The sunshine showed off the flat silk to it's best advantage.
This is the other ball chrysanthemum worked with twisted silk.
Foundations and chrysanthemums. After looking at the chrysanthemum like this I decided it was a bit flat on one side, so when it got re-worked I added in some more petals on the left hand side.
Maples and shell box, more flat silk shining in the sunshine!!
This is where I was upto before I carried on with the foundations and chrysanthemums.
This was taken later in the day after I'd reworked the chrysanthemum and finished the foundation, still shiny even inside, have I mentioned how I love the effect of flat silk!!! I decided the chrysanthemum needed more orange so I had a bit of a colour change while putting in the extra petals. I'm thinking it's still a bit wonky on the left hand side so might to back and tweak this a bit.
