Been snipping and pulling away at the layers like a little demented – the image is beginning to come through more clearly. The real problem I have with reverse applique is knowing when to stop. Don’t think I’ve got there yet, a lot more of the background will have to be cut away soon. Desperately need to do something about the wonkiness ( it looks awkward), add in more detail and add the buttress detail to the right or the tree in front? Any thoughts?
