Autumn Leaves Wedding Pillow - Numbering and Metallic Leaf Flecks

This is where we left off in part four of this series, the completed silk thread painting.  Part five takes a brief look at the metallic work.  I say brief as I, sadly, didn't take many WIP photos during this part.

I love metallic touches in my pieces and am a big fan of Kreinik threads.  The numbering was done in copper coloured #8 fine braid in shade 021C, couched down with cord shade 021C.

Numerals complete and time to add a few metallic flecks to the leaves.  These were the threads I chose from my collection of Kreinik Cords:

At this point, the piece is still in the hoop.  Part six, next time, will showcase the completed little cushion/pillow.

Leaves and trees are my favourite subjects after beetles. You have done a wonderful job, love the colours and the metallic threads.

Just the right finishing touch - a good choice of metallics there!

The metallic threads really do add an extra pop!
