i fell in love with creating sewing pattern flowers of all sizes and shapes on this piece. i also added a plethora of vintage buttons throughout the artwork. a smear of modeling paste secured the row at the top left making sure there was not one out of place. tack nails held the flowers center in place adding a rustic element to such a feminine piece. i outlined the flower with a charcoal pencil giving it nice rough lines of black and also a crudeness of a childs piece of art - love those additions!
