|The basic wedding cake.|
I enjoyed using tons of lace scraps from my stash, along with Jacquard Lumiere textile paint to unite the laces and trims.
|Laces, netting, ribbons, and buttons.|

This has got to be the most monochromatic piece I have ever done. And all that white doesn't photograph well either, at least not indoors. But what would Miss Havisham say to my taking her cake outside to photograph it in sunlight!
I wrote a lot about my research and a little about my technique here on my textile blog, Deep in the Heart of Textiles, and I hope you check that out. (The link is where it says "here," -- I don't see that the link is a different color than the normal font in these posts.)
I am not that thrilled with the piece itself, but I had so much fun working on it, and these days, a happy process is reward enough!
