This "W" is still " IP"

Still working on Wire Fence II. It IS progressing , but slowly. I keep changing my mind on things. Here is where I am "at" just now. Please bear in mind that I am only estimating leaf placements as much of the info I need is covered by the post.
Remember that the placement is not too accurate
This is coming along but I still have lots to do - not the least is deciding on and making a background in a colour(s) that I like. I am thinking darkish greens but part of me is thinking light and limey greens or chartreuses. However, it IS autumn and the paler background might not work. A bit dicey as I do not want to end up with a bunch of BIG pieces of fabric that I would not use. SOOO much to think about!

  1. A background would be hard to decide on because you also don't want the leaves to disappear into it. They need to stay in the forefront.

  2. I'm so interested in your process. On the web the leaves look real. How do you achieve the wavy edge and veins?

  3. your placement may be estimated at this point, but it looks fabulous, and as usual, so real! The background will be a tough one to decide.

  4. It is looking fabulous despite it being WIP! Tricky one about the background fabric though!

  5. I love reading about you deciding on colors. Colors are so important to me and you always choose good combinations.

  7. I agree and the leaves are stunning. It will be important for the background color to allow the leaves to pop. Would it help to audition with paper and paint?
    I'm wondering about dark greyed greens more true to autumn.
    Can't wait to see what works for you!
