New piece - Faces...done

When in doubt, I turn to faces or trees, sometimes at the same time.  I wanted to use a soft sheer on top of the busy fabric I chose but also wanted it to have some kind of image.
 My son who draws incredibly well, did a number of faces I turned into silk screens.
 I like how subtle it is and it even tones the blue down. this might work.
 I added a little bit of writing to the bottom layer
 and decided that a narrow band of black might work well to divide the fabric.
 The yellow fabric on the side was discharged with an image of writing.
 I then matted it in mat board with an 8 1/2 x 11 opening. I still have lots of scraps left though!
