I appear to be in a creative zone, from art dolls to silk paper

I used this picture as my inspiration

Using cocoon strippings I made a base fibre and added tussah silks to create a cross like image

Next I added merino and silks in greens as a background colour

Then I decided to pick up on the tulip shape in purples, blues and red merino and silks

The effect was quite nice, but difficult to see clearly, so I decided to add fabric paint to distinguish the tulip shapes
