Fabric cut and placed on felt background, this has a net placed over it so that I can use my embellishing machine to give the background a texture
Machine embellished background
I have then cut the waxed tissue into random squares and oblongs. I put a piece of heavy duty plastic over my embellished background to protect it and placed the tissue in a pleasing order. this I then joined with matte medium. once the piece was dry I lightly covered the back with matte medium and lightly pressed it onto the background. This will help it stay in place whilst stitching it and hopefully give it a little more strength.
