Where do you stop? How far over the top do you go? IS there a perfect balance? Those are the questions that accompany the last stages of any project, and especially this one. My work is always heavily embellished in some way. It could be with stitch, with beads, with couching…and it’s always a struggle to know where to draw the line and call it done!
I think this one is done, but I have questions about a couple of areas. Here it is with the edges pinned under so I can really tell the finished size.
My areas of concern are the left edge and the bottom. Do I need more ‘stuff’ on the bottom left and do I need to crop it just a touch closer on the left edge?
Should I perhaps have some more shreds along the bottom? Or have a couple of spots of beaded fringe hanging off the edge?
Please let me know what you think! I often get caught in a “what if” loop at this point and can’t quite move forward. I think it’s because the decisions are really final and the project will be over!
Can you believe that this project came from this initial idea?
Doesn’t quite look like that now, does it?
