Embroidered photo collage

I took this photo a couple of years ago and have been waiting to do something with it.  I printed the picture on to a piece of cotton (a photo transfer sheet) and then embroidered it with cotton floss and embellished it with beads.  I painted the canvas with acrylic paint and lots of layers of old book pages, old ledger pages, parts of an old sewing pattern, and some tissue paper. I then added more paint, inks, and stamps.  The quote "it's not about the destination" came to me one evening after hearing my daughters playing.  I asked them what they were doing and they said they were taking a journey.  I asked them where they were going and they told me they didn't know, but that it didn't matter.  I hope you enjoy it.
