Isn't It Grand!

"Isn't It Grand" was my entry for this week's Thursday Sweet Treat challenge. This week's theme was "Let Beauty Rain Down Upon".

I've been experimenting with a new technique, a form of mixed media. I transfer my original photos onto silk and then bead embroider over the photo.

This image is of the fountain in the Tea Garden at Grand Hotel. It's a lovely place to sit, cool in the heat of summer and delightful on a moonlit evening with the water streaming up and falling down, both visually and acoustically soothing. Grand holds a very special place in my heart and inspires many of my pieces.
Here's a few more images of the fountain:
