Here's the third phase. The stitching and beads were added. Really had fun with the free motion technique and sewing on the beads. I realized the flower images were missing on the mug so I created a flower stamp. Thinking the piece needed more white I stamped on watercolor paper and attached that to the mug. It still needs something... will sleep on it and take a look with fresh eyes tomorrow.
I also finished reading "The Alchemist". Very nice story about a young boy that listened to his heart and followed his dreams. Quotes I will remember from the story. "There is only one way to learn, It's through action", Have courage & enthusiasm while accomplishing your dreams, and the fear of failure is the only thing that will keep you from obtaining them.
