Shirlee Fassell of NEEDLEANDHOOK lets us look over her shoulder at her course practice piece for Lesage Level III. She says,
The piece is called Les Coeurs…The design is worked on silk organza. All the beads and sequins are applied with a tambour hook. The dark brown soutache around the outline, the raffia and the padded areas covered with pearl cotton is sewn on with a needle.
Exquisite! See many more photos at her blog post.
