PLACEMENT of MATERIALS
This is where you have fun.
Place your chosen materials onto the fabric base and around your image asthetically.
You may decide not to use all of the bits and pieces that you first chose or you may even add more as you go along.
I often find that the work needs "just THAT something extra " as I stitch it.
Pin into place and sit back and look at it for a few minutes to see if it is a balanced arrangement.It sometimes helps to turn it upside down..or mirror image it.
When you are satisfied with the placement of your materials and or lace, either hand or machine stitch into place.
I find hand stitching very relaxing, and you can also change the position of pieces without much trouble too.
