Embellishment examples from Belgie
First of all I want to thank Beth for her very good explanation
This are examples playing with lots of different materials.
The most of embellishment techniques I used over the years is my favorite stitsch " the chain stitch" ( I don't know this is the right translation)
One of my older work is the poster of the show " Varekai" of the cirque du soleil. All bij hand ( chane stitch)
also one quilt with the Muppets for my grandson. All the figures are applique with my favorite stitch
When I use beads, I usually make my own beads with paper, silk or tyvek.
