Graffiti with Tufts

Another "What If."  This time I stayed with the same graffiti crazy piecing for the background, but asked, What if I make tufts of layered fabrics for the embellishments?  I layered different silks, cottons and sheers and freeform machine stitched them together to form separate units.   I then handstitched these to the background.

Love what you are doing. Very interesting and colorful. They are perfect for this time of year. Very autumny and fall like.
The birds are great also!!
