I wanted to extend the purple flower spray to the yellow patch to make it less heavy.
First I laid the components of the pansy on their possible places. Then I decided how the curls looked best.
I embroidered the curls with detached chain stitch.
A simple seam treatment: a looped stitch is kept in its place by a detached chain stitch.
Later on I might add beads.
Next comes a beaded twig from lilac beads. This twig extends the purple spray and makes a sort of connection with the lilac patch on the left. I made a lay-out first. The white pieces of paper are the leaves of the pansy.
