Fish on a Stick

My latest project. I started this over the winter, and finally assembled the pieces with wire and beads last week. I fused the fish to the background fabric, quilted it with metallic thread, couched some yarn to mimic seaweed, and then cut the whole piece up into 4"x6" tiles. Hung everything from a painted dowel, thus the fish on a stick! Glitter glue added some sparkle here and there. Fast2fuse in the middle for stiffness. I've made lots of postcards, but this is the first time I have put multiple small pieces together.
