This is mulberry paper, cheese cloth, and metallic thread all stuck together. It's kind of like paper mache. The little purple disc is basically a dimensional piece done in the same paper mache style. I stitched it onto the base with metallic thread. It\'s going to be a page in a circle journal that I am making. I think it's better in real life than the photo but I also think that it's not finished. It needs something else just not sure where to go with it. Unlike the unfinished piece I posted On Sept. 10th I'm not afraid to ruin this one.
