At a bit of a loss now on how to enhance the very 1D'ness of the fishies.

Apart from giving them eyes, Ive tried placing gemstones along their flank, but that just looks so wrong its untrue ...



I have dotted teeny tiny gemstones all over the quilt, generally in a colour the same as they are on, so its quite difficult to photograph, at least in that pic there is certainly no bling!

 .... and I have noticed that a certain white diamante, used within the surf is much sparklier than the others ...

Is it too much? Is it too lil ?
Oh God, I haven't got a clue and I'm doing this all wrong

Any ideas?

I like the flatness it helps them stand out from the stitching on the water if you put too much detail on them  everything will have the same amount.. sometimes less is more

It all looks good to me.  Veggie's right this is a case of less being more.   If you add too much bling it will start to look tacky.

These orange stones measure 2mm across so not too ostentatious I hope.

That whale tail is inspired! Great vision.
I also love the colours and the sea foam and sky.
Here's a word I haven't heard used in this context for many years but it fits the bill perfectly...MASSIVE!!!   :loveit:
