I was true to my word and spent some time this week making a paper sample for a new piece.
I'm actually relatively pleased with it, however, paper does not have the same transparency as some of the materials that I plan on using (mainly organza), but it has still given me an idea of what it might look like when I am finished.
I am still trying to make decisions on final size, but I like that it is long, rather than wide. However, I am not sure that I want the piece to be horizontal, and this particular composition does not lend itself well to being hung vertically.
So, I want to do one more sample and re-arrange some elements to see if I can create a vertical composition along the same lines. That is going to be my goal for the next week.
