Sepia by Stephanie.

I loved the idea of using 'sepia' tones as a colourway for whatever I chose as a subject. Over recent weeks I have begun collecting seedheads - these were the perfect inspiration. I wanted to create something simple but effective.
I began by using small pieces of fabric and embroidery threads to create a few seedheads before stitching the stems.
I loved the finished piece and the muted tones. 

I found it very difficult to photograph, but the close-ups give a better idea of the lovely colours.

 I adore seedheads - I photograph them and always collect some to keep in jars. I enjoyed trying to represent them in this way.
