Tidying, tidying a sample to be more precise, extending it with paper, sequins, beads and texture. I have lots of embroidered scraps like this in my stash. Most of them are cut up and used in artist books but the more substantial pieces like this one are often mounted and developed into complete pages. This one will find it's way into one of my large, shop bought sketchbooks as opposed to one of my hand made artist books.
Those sketchbooks are an invaluable resource of design ideas which I look through, turn pages and stare at often. They contain pieces of work, compositions similar to this one. I have attached a few images from one of them below.
