Recently I came across the phrase "Intuitive Design". Don't know what it means to anyone else but I chose to just take a piece and see where it lead me. The background is on a small piece of silk velvet dyed purple (or painted - I'm not sure as it was a gift). Then I just started grabbing things and auditioning them and moving them until I liked it. No pre-set plan or goal...just fun. Only thing I knew was that I wanted to play with some Extreme Texture!
I had done some of the 3-D polyester using the technique posted by Nienke in October
It was great and I loved the effect but just couldn't think of anything to do with my greenish-bronze polyester.
Then there were some very organically made beads in Beth Berman's posts on Embellishments.

I had some painted Tyvek hanging around, got out my heat gun and went to work.
Finally, I combined all these ingredients (and a few more) and came up with Sour Grapes
