Finished UFO

 I have had this water/sea themed piece around for over a year and it might be two. I finally got around to making it into a notebook cover. This was spurred on because I'm going to try and get some of my work on consignment in a shop in Missoula. I needed a sample notebook cover so here it is. This is the front.
 And here's the back. I just bought a school type notebook from Wally World. It can be easily replaced.
 Here's the inside. I decided for a pop of complementary color. Plus the orange fabric had purple in it and the lining is purple.
Here's the inside of the cover without the book in place. That's the only time you can see the purple which this photo made a bit more blue than it is in real life. I am also working on finishing up more barrettes, scarves and perhaps a felted vase. If I do get accepted, I'll have to be very busy when I get back from my class and get pieces done to sell.

I like how you used the rovings for effect and the way you made it look like foam rolling in.
