Finished a page for my textile sketchbook/journal.
I'm tempted to add hand stitching into the green background, maybe doodling. However, I will resist. First of all, my rule for the textile sketchbook is speed (relative). Secondly there's rather a lot of paper on the back that would require picking out. Thirdly, I like the simplicity of the design.
The red background fabric, although mostly covered, still has a presence. The red extensions make me think of new scientific theory, which suggests that all living things have an energy field around them, a sort of aura. I like the idea of auras. That is, we extend beyond ourselves in some sort of ephemeral way.
