Here's a little project inspired by Anne Eckley, who taught a workshop on free-motion machine embroidery on papers and found objects. This is a leaf that she brought to the class that was already dried out. I glued it to some found papers and "sealed" it with heat-set plastic wrap, with an iron over parchment paper. Then today I dug it out and did some stitching, and manipulated the colors a bit in Photoshop. I like it.
