This is a large, thirteen by nine, children's board book. I have worked on this over a period of time. I have used scrap fabric from other projects, left over images printed on fabric, found objects, etc. The outside cover and back are a yummy aqua velvet, found at a yard sale for a dollar. For the inside I stuck with cottons, drapery samples, etc. It is put together but not finished. The bones are there.
Do you ever have projects like that? They look okay but there is just something you need to do to make it really outstanding. I think it needs some acrylic paint and maybe some fabric dye. or maybe it is one of those situations that Robert Browning spoke of. "Less is more". So now I am putting it out there - see what you think. When I finish I will post some of the pages. So here is the rough draft.
