I then cut out three backgrounds,started collaging, and free-hand snipped some leaf stalks (a bit similar to Jane's, I'm afraid . . .).
All of the pieces measure @ 5.5 inches and will become another Art X 3. I actually finished all of the sewing today!!!!!!!!!!
Now for the backing--I decided I'd try fabric this time by previewing several different shades and patterns of aqua blue.
I think I know the one I like best, but I'll mull for a while and then adhere the fabric to a piece of foam core and glue down the collages. Another post coming soon.
