panel progress

The stitching on my panel is now complete. Here it is.

You are going to be horrified when I tell you what I've done to it today - I assure you it was the plan all along - I painted it with Iron metalic paint and a rust activator. I've got to say that dipping my paint brush into the paint and making that first stroke did give me butterflies - but I have made one before although not quite as big and I used a Baroque metalic paint for this, it really is quite beautiful so I'm hoping my new panel will look good as well. I won't know how it turns out untill it is fully dry. This is the book cover I made with the other one, it looks much better in reality than on the scan.
