A piece is not finished until the facing is on

and in the case of the piece pictured above, the facing hasn't been cut yet.  so as I said in the last post I thought it needed more.   I added more.   Still not satisfied, but getting there with the addition of some acrylic paint, stamping and stenciling. 

 

Here is my latest piece. #3 for the year.   After I took the picture and uploaded it I think the uppermost flower center is too dark so I am going to stitch back into that area with a thread of lighter value
Most of the time, I turn my images into B&W in my photo program to check how the values are working.  I think the center should be somewhat closer in value to the center in the second flower down

what a great idea to use the grayscale on the camera! I'm going down to the studio right now and try it on my work in progress
