I may soften some of the background .... lose some of the detail and the idea, if it works, will be to have the 3 front bits as attachments but fairly flat !!
Now to source the materials. I saw some fabric today which might work. If not it is back to dyeing my own. The background I will probably dye myself.

Finished and mounted on an artists canvas (12 x 12). Background dyed and stitched with the stems painted in afterwards. The frog is a commercial piece of fabric and he has a piece of thermor behind him and then I went in with my favourite ...... Pentel Fabric Pastel Crayons. The shimmer was created by using the end of a kebab stick and a pin head and silver paint.
Very happy with him.

Fabric 'brewing', the splotchy green fabric on the left will probably do for the frog but I will need to find some fawn colour as well.
As if to remind me to get on with it ..... my above friend or a family member, plonked him/herself on the lounge window opposite where this picture was taken,just over a year later. So happy to know they are still around.
