Altered Embroidery Hoop

An altered embroidery hoop I created for Linda B. for the August ReneaBoquets Swap! Since Linda and I agreed on an “anything goes” theme, I used the Creative Embellishments August mood board challenge as inspiration. Specifically the Silver & Purple ombré hair. I had planned on trying a green & purple idea, as you’ll see at the beginning of the video, but that didn’t work out very well, so I assumed it was because the ombré hair was haunting my thoughts!
