The Princess And The Toad Cowl - WIP Pics

This is the first work in progress pic of the decoration of the piece. I have ruffled some light green lace to the bottom of the cowl and layered it with some ruffled old gold tulle. I was going to use two foam balls wrapped in gold cloth hanging on the ends of the pull but I can't find any fabric that looks the way I want it. I could wrap them in tulle but its not going to cover the white of the balls enough

I have found a fabulous tutorial for making organza water lilies but I won't be putting them on the piece I shall be making them large and scattering them all around the ground when I photograph the piece. I'm also a collector of frog prince sculptures so I'm going to have either my favourite wirework frog or my little green prince balancing on the hand of my model.

Now to stitch the ruffles to the cowl.
