I keep experimenting with my botanical embroideries and testing this new technique I came up with. I'm finding there's so many possibilities and ideas that I hope I can inspire people to try their own hand at it. I'm super excited to be sharing my knowledge and skill so far through digital tutorials done in collaboration with these amazing craft platforms.
