Balancing the Books - FAB Collage

Balancing the Books 

I made this FAB Collage  and sent it to my accountant.  I wasn't really thinking of taxes when I made it, but I think it was perfect for him!.  I don't usually combine paper with these, but somehow the Japanese Rice paper seemed to be perfect for the upper clouds on the left. After all, these little beauties will never be washed!   Once I am satisfied with the design I fuse all the fabric down. Then I stitch every piece of fabric down (I don't trust the fuse).  Then I embellish with decorative machine stitching, hand stitching, yarns, and beads. Not too much, just what the design calls for.
