My piece of work now has some monetary value!! The green circular motif on the left is a paper cast made over a purchased print block using up scraps of dissolvable paper. Painted with various types of acrylic paint. Hand stitched to the surface with a Madeira metallic machine thread.
The metallic coin is a piece of copper shim which I have embossed, heated, painted with alcohol inks, then blue and black acrylic paint rubbed off. A piece of felt was placed behind it prior to it being stitched onto the surface of the page.
