Sketchbook pages and more samples ...

A page of samples in my sketchbook - using the same shape as before - machine stitching; machine couching (laying a thread on the fabric and couching it down with my sewing machine); and 3D paint

For the 3D paint sample, I painted it on a piece of dark brown velvet, heated it with a heat gun to "puff" it up, painted it black, then highlighted it with gold leaf

Oooooh, love the texture on this, especially the touch of gold hitting the high points!
