Blue Book Cover

Today I finished this book cover. I was looking for something to add and found those poetry dog tags I bought ages ago and never used. The book cover is for one of my sketch books, so I think the words "twisted", "fragile" and "beautiful" fit it. My thoughts are often twisted, my confidence for my ideas is often fragile and sometimes I create something beautiful despite the first 2.This is a mixture of techniques. First I added some wool with stitching, then I added some more wool and blue yarn with the embelilisher, then added some blue and turquois Lumiere paint, then again more stitching and finally the tags. The base fabric is some black comercial felt which I love using for this sort of projects. You don´t need any sort stabilizer and it is perfect to use with the embellisher.
