Paisley in polymer

I showed step by step photos of this on plurk as I was making it. Here I will show you the beginning and the end result. This is for the lid of a large keepsake box. My friend Diane of Cymberrain asked me to create one for her in blues, greens and purples. She left the design of it up to me. I have always loved paisley and Diane has made some absolutely beautiful ones! So I know that is what I wanted to make for her.

I started with a very rough sketch of an idea that was in my head.

This is the end result. Originally I was going to do a Sutton slice piece and chopped that up for the Stroppel cane that is part of the design.
