Another kantha embroidery piece I just completed. I used three layers of white voile, tacked in place and drew the pattern.
To create rippling effect of water,I used two different shades of blue and a purple and did them in a kind of an overlapped shells to match the lotus leaf. Also, added yellow at the top to represent sunshine.
The bottom of the pond is in a shade of aqua.
The finished piece is about 8x14 inches and it took about two months.
Do you like my imaginary pond?
