Art Nouveau - Front Cover for Fabric Book


This is my front cover to a fabric page swap I'm participating in with the Fiber Art Friends group. My theme is Art Nouveau. I sewed a design on a few layers of organza, used the soldering iron to cut it out, and then sewed it on to a piece of black velvet. This swap is going to be a huge challenge for me, as the group who is involved are a very talented bunch, and I need to stretch myself to keep up with them!!!
