I took a photo of the blue piece above and then manipulated it in Photoshop by copying it and combining several copies in different layers.
I enlarged a portion of this and made a collage.
Having made some books at the last meeting I experimented with some different shaped books including this one.
I have an idea of making an icon incorporating pieces of scrap - plastic, tops of wine bottles, anything else that I can find. This idea came to me whilst watching an episode of Time Team where they find pieces of discarded items which are now "treasure".
I plan to do some stitch samples next.
