Driftwood Angel

I just love her! The pictures really do not do this piece justice. I may do a little more embellishment, but not much. I have been just fascinated with embroidery of late, but knowing I wanted to take this old craft and give it a little modern twist. What really made it pop for me was taking a pencil and shading the face after doing a very simple back stitch. It gives a very organic feel to the face which goes so will with the natural materials. I am sure this is just the beginning of much more exploration. I am going to have to start taking my daily walks just to find more driftwood.
