Final Polish

I actually finished this page about 2 weeks ago but getting the house cleaned up and a visit from Wayne's folks have keep me pretty busy and catching up on my Artistic Kreations and Passions website, my Web Gallery and working on my Pond Necklace has also taken a bit of time.

This page has the most embroidery without beads of any of my pages so far and it is one of my favorites. It could be partially the subject matter, the fact that I used some of my treasures on it or the very textural quality of it.

I used a couple of different stitches in 11/0 and 15/0 seed beads for the moss, some lone seed beads for a bit of rock gravel, and a bit of fringing for the lichen. I made a spiral herringbone vine for the border.
