    I'm really BAD at taking images, but it is a really easy art form. Exactly as easy as pasting construction paper. Then doing a quilting stitch to hold it all down. EASY PEASY! Absolutely the hardest part is cutting all the little pieces of fabric in the colors that you need. If you had the patience you could do the Mona Lisa. As long as you are copying a photo or anything else, you don't need to be all the creative, just be a copier. Just duplicate what you see. A snap. And, once the dreary job of cutting is done, it is a very fast process.

    I think she tore off the excess tulle.

Then you sprinkle the tiny pieces onto the batting which is laying on top of your backing. You have to work flat on a flat surface. I encourage students to use a design board (think cardboard or foam core board). Once the design covers the batting to your satisfaction, you cover the whole thing with bridal tulle (fine netting) and you quilt it to death with your machine.

    Got it?
    Would it be possible or worthwhile to purchase a pre printed panel of a landscape and then use the confetti on top of that? That way it could be sort of 3d in some areas and not in others. What are your thoughts?
