I got inspired by some recent scrapbooking I did and wanted to make some higher-end collages for single mounted photos since I haven't seen too many of those around. This is my first one, and I spent about 4 hours on it today. Everything is hand-sewn to the base paper. I'm really trying to find the fine line between making something that looks simple and elegant without being too basic and cheap looking.
My question is, how much do you think I should charge for something like this? What if I put it in a frame? (I'm thinking particularly of some nice $12 ones that I saw at Target). If you saw this in a store would you think, "I love this, I must have it!" or would you think, "This is o.k., but I could make a better one."
I tried to take better pictures today- I hope the details show a bit more.
This one is a little difficult to see because I intentionally made it monochromatic:

I wish you could see all the stitching, but anyway, I hope these pictures show what I mean a bit more. Thanks!
