finished work

In the Souljournaling class given by Sarah Whitmire we had to alter a picture.
This was a first for me.
What a great way to remove unwanted details so that the attention only goes to the focal point !

After removing the unwanted parts I recoloured using my “caran d’ache neocolor II” and watering them afterwards.
Now, the eye is only attracted by the focal point.

I completely finished the challenge piece.
I added more stitches and then cut the surface in five instead of three. I reassembled then with a metallic thread.
This was fun to make and I will never look at grocery bags the same way as I did before.
This is also the reason I named this piece :

Boy, that finished piece is so great. Slicing it up and stitching it back together made for such a neat effect. It's almost like it's a completely different project. Love it!
