A Little "What If" break

I needed a little stitching break, so I did another one of the "What If's" on my list.  This time I made new marked graffiti fabrics in shades of brown instead of the black and whites I was using earlier.  I wanted to see how the sheers worked on a background fabric with less contrast, although I didn't use the sheers much on this piece.    Besides changing the background, I asked, What If I use silks, velvets and chiffons for embellishments, but attach them all with heavy cotton crochet thread.  I like the texture of the thread and will use it again.  I especially like the french knots it made.

a great what if. i like crochet cotton too - it gives a nice firm line and is duller than perle cotton which can be nice.

Robin, Your color and texture contrasts are fun. It makes me
want to come up with some "what ifs". Paula

i really like where you're going with this. this last piece is my favorite (and i've gone back to the beginning and admired them all).

I like the idea of 'What if.' I have been trying that on lots of aspects of my life, including my job and my attitudes, etc.
