Weirdly this isn't quite what it seems...

So this is two layers of skin and quite strangely now looks like a view through two trees into a wood... yawn.....
The stitching (red) is visible through the top layer in the middle of the image... where it looks like more copse between the trees.  Quite effective... at marrying the two layers together.

Today has been an off day.  Yes I do get them.  And I really do want to throw out the samples with the bath-water.  I didn't sleep well as I was turning over in my mind just how to manage all the ideas above and below (blog entries) at ACAD where I can't possibly re-create my own studio.  Also so little time so much to do scenario again...
Thinking maybe I need to do something different at ACAD after all..... Something smaller... and more tightly constrained.
Also - perhaps I am trawling the old same-same... and need to put my own spin on all these digital surfaces... collage, skins printing on metal, double yawn - I need to evolve... how will it work out? my mind is in overdrive.  It hurts.  "Bursting with ideas" is no metaphor.

What if you changed the orientation so that the "trees" are top and bottom borders, then overstitched a digital line of design that contrasted over the whole?

Yes,Arlee - Thanks...
I am moving on with this I really am. I am loosening up... this is what I need to do... Even though the images were already printed on a strange surface... I was sticking too rigidly to the image and the print, I need more hours on it although I may go quiet for a while... friend visiting for 2 weeks... I hope that she is interested enough, and there is time enough, for me to keep a low-key development going.... stay tuned...
