Day of the Dead Embroidery and Batik


 Say Hello to my little day of the dead lady.  I made this for a swap, my partner liked Day of the dead faces as do I, but I wanted to do a little experiment as well.  I have used this technique before do my banner for the blog, which is a faux batik with acrylic paints and glue.  I really wanted to try it more with embroidery and this is what I came up with. 

I had a lot of fun making this lady and I think I will try out this technique a couple more times, I just think it adds a really interesting dimension to the embroidery which otherwise wouldn't be there.
