Help please

My intention for the book cover below was to have more dark areas to really show off the throwsters silk waste providing the light areas. Too heavy handed on the silk was I, now what can I do with it?


The silk provides a fab lustre but the book, for me,  is too plain overall. I haven’t been able to find any beads that look right on the front so I’m hoping perhaps you’ll have ideas.

  1. To me it looks lichens on a rock, could you not accentuate the lobes of the lichen with complementary hues such as terracottas, yellows and oranges? Or marble? look at pictures of real marble and see how the veining goes – think they are usually darker and give a fractured look

    \see you next Saturday!
