Isabel's Workshop on Fabric Sand
Those people who attended Ruth Bloomfield's confetti workshop some years ago will recognize similar elements in Isabel's technique. The pieces are the same "trapezoid" shape but much smaller, only 5mm at most. If your fabric has an obvious wrong side, use fusible webbing to fuse two pieces wrong side together, in this way you don't have to pick through and turn each little piece right side up. The slivers are scattered across the area with shadows being created by slivers of the opposite colour on the colour wheel. They are trapped beneath a layer of tulle and then free-motion stitched onto the background.
