Fabric sectional/s – updated

As I began to embellish each section I decided to join them into a whole piece rather than forming them into a book as I had originally intended.   I am really liking the result so far………

Initially I was thinking to use this as a background, á la art journal style.   My first thought being to create some form of self-portrait as a surface design…. as these were literally journal sections that I had cut up and reformed,  a representation of my life, albeit for a day or so only, it would make sense to have some form of self imprinted/embellished onto the background.  However, now I have stitched it all together I am not so sure.  At present it is pinned to a wall where I see it often – I will wait until it tells me what it wants me to do with it.   More stitching probably – and, as Marci suggested, some beading ….. it may then be complete perhaps.

    I’d love to have this on the cover of my journal.

    It would beat what’s there now.

    My journal cover is just plain black, a.k.a. incognito!
