Crystal Rain

I wanted to come up with a new way to embellish with applique pieces, and had this pretty scroll of embroidered flowers on netting that I thought would work on my current project. Since any stitches used to apply it would be visible -- and I didn't want that -- I decided to literally bead it to the patchwork:

Once I had beaded the lace netting into place I began adding extra beads below it so that it would look like the applique was raining beads:

To get some extra shimmer I attached all the crystal beads with multicolor holographic Sulky, which glints through the beading and adds tiny bits of color:
