Accidental Klimt

A little while ago I made this small art piece.

It's about the same size as an A4 piece of paper. I used silk scraps in varying natural shades with a little bit of sheer fabric.

All the pieces were cut freehand so there are no straight lines anywhere. Under the sheer fabric I added metallic elements and shapes cut out of paper. The whole thing was then heavily machine quilted with a variety of different threads, variegated and plain.

The colours came out a little dark on this photo!

By accident, the end result is very Klimt like.

This is amazing Mandi - the colours are wonderful, and I love all the curvy lines, specially the outside curvy edge! Val
