This Piece Is Not Finished

Did you ever know what you want, but aren't sure how to get there? That's happening with this little mini-book. I like the blue and the monoprints with the leaves. I like the art paper on the cover. I used paper tracings of the leaves as a mask when I inked in the blue



 and I like how they contrast with the cover. I'd like to finish the edges and add some rust color to those.

The inside isn't really what I want. I want layers. I want mystery. I'd like a darker tone. I'm wondering whether to collage some botanicals over it, or maybe cover it partially and redo it.

Ideas?

I'll keep you posted with its progress......

So true!
