I started life as a cell (stage 2) ...

Here's the result of some sheer plastic hand-stitched on the work.

Next, a layer of heat-gun treated sheer polyester seems a suitable next layer (horizontal/vertical creases are where it has been folded prior to picture taken !) - inset right is a close-up.

Laying this fabric sheet over the work adds another cellular dimension & alters all the colours.

Starting with some 'punch work' adds another layer of illusion ! albeit in metallic thread (detail at right)

I started life as a cell (stage 1) ...

I've started stitching my 'cell' sample - seen gradually progressing at CURRENT PROJECT.

A slow task especially as when I return to it, several days have passed & I have to get back into the "thought waves" !!

Time is not on my side ! ...

I'm currently experimenting with transparent plastics for my cell project - which unfortunately is progressing too slowly! Reasons? ... I've got a variety of 'mundane sewing house jobs' on so unable to get as much time as I'd like to continue with it. However, I do it when I can - currently I'm expanding on this small experimental piece from several years ago.
