It was 4.30 am in Melbourne and I presented a ribbon embroidery demonstration via skype to a VIP event at NeedleDelux in St Petersburg, Russia.   The focus for this demonstration was to look at how to create layered effects in two different styles when working on painted backgrounds.  Here are the two ribbon embroidery projects I presented:

The backgrounds were painted first, the background petals and leaves were created with ribbon stitch to create depth.  I use combinations of organza or silk ribbon (these ribbons are 7mm).  The front petal of the violet is a ruffle, made with 13mm silk ribbon.

 It was wonderful to see some familiar faces from my masterclasses which I taught there in May 2012, and continue to share experiences of new techniques and approaches to creating violets.  Some photos from the masterclasses last year:

I regularly use skype to organize commissioned paintings, communicate with my agents or partners of collaborative projects overseas and within Australia, and do some demonstrations.   If you'd like to know more about this, please contact me to make an appointment.
