What are you most proud of? I made a lot of mistakes with this first one, but I see all art as a series of problems to solve. I'm proud I used the photo of the first one, mistakes and all.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? There are some small pieces to cut out. I fused almost all of the pieces with a sewable bond. I traced each piece onto the paper backing before cutting. Small, sharp scissors and either tweezers or those small surgical clamps help, too.
