It is going to be a book. Definitely.
Here is the little prince with his men in the woods.
I had some prints from my drawings printed with the ink-jet printer on canvas sheets.
I did more and more cut outs of the former background and collaged them together.

I am working on many pages at the same time, always doing appliqué or easy stitches.
I think my book will be finished soon if I keep on working...
This is hoy I sew the pieces together. I don't give many explanations of everything because I think that the process is pretty obvious. If you have questions, please ask!

I decided to do a book and this is the first page. Finished.
Not happy with the contrast...:
I sew the squares to a dyed cheese cloth. I punched it to some paper.
I added more contrast to the piece with couching and these stitches:
Now I'm happy. I put some tulle underneath and more paper:
I sew it to these layers...
Back, painted with white acrylic paint:
Added one more layer of tulle to the back and sew everything together so that you can turn the page of the book when the piece is finished:
Contrast before and after:
I'm always asked how I plan a piece. I hope this semi-challenge is the answer. I began with an idea and added to it. I can't keep the same concept for 3 months... I always get more ideas and the piece speaks to me all the time.
Now I will continue with page 2...
