Next Stage



This is the work stamped, The gold is a lot more muted, and the maroon scroll is not showing up too well, I tried scanning both halves,and publishing them side by side, looked OK in preview, but blogger has done its own thing and put them on top of one another
My original idea was to work on the rust coloured stage and stitch with a rayon thread to create door panels, its going to fold to the middle into a book cover, but it just seemed a bit dead so I added the stamped images, and I need to rethink my stitching.I need a deep maroon I think.
Below is a scan of the panel folded to the centre.
