There were no real rules as this is pretty much a "no rules" group. The starting piece was supposed to be 9 x 12 and a stiff interfacing like Timtex was to be used.
Here is what I received on Tuesday night. Don't you love it. Unfortunately you can't see the texture that is on the piece. There is Angelina up in the left corner that sparkles. The flower in the upper right is 3D. The beige near the bottom is needle punched and the blue seaweed is made of various fibers like ribbon, yarn and dyed cheesecloth. Around the neck of the woman is a lei of silk flowers.
