Crystal Fire

The backgound uses two colorways of the same fabric--one yellow, one orange. To set off the border I added a couple funky yarns in electric blue to contrast strongly against the orange. Complementary color schemes are my default choice. I go for a lot of shock value. Do not be afraid of color. Color is your friend.

Some hot-fix crystals add sparkle (they don't show well in this close up.)All the applique is fused with Wonder Under. The purple twisty things are woven over/under the blue rings. Easy to do with fusing as you can just snip and tuck.

This is beautiful. I like the idea of using the fuzzy yarn.

Thanks, Elaine, the yarn seemed appropriate for a wacky piece like this.
