A blog about my interests, which include fabric landscapes and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Lady Sebastian is moving on!
Lady Sebastian has been living here with me for the past while and I must admit I'm going to be very sad to see her leave and head out on her travels again.
She is on a quest through Egypt in hopes of finding her
My additions included painting her dress, adding the beaded fringe to her apron and on the bottom of her dress, and the spear. There is also an arm band (an old tarnished ring) and a cat charm on her apron.
I did four pages in her travel journal.... here's page one....
The background for this page was a piece of painted textured wallpaper. I painted and heated some Tyvek for the 'blobs' on either side. The bug appeared out of my stash and fit the theme because scarabs were an Egyptian relic.
This page was a piece of watercolour paper I painted. Additions included the sun (an applique), a cat button which I antiqued and a string of trim that looks suspiciously like 'real' gold. If you embiggen the picture I think you can read the words.
and page 3 & 4...
The background for this is a piece of my rusted fabric with a feather trim added on the side. Behind the cat image is a piece of 'snakeskin' fabric. The relics on the right were blobs of hot glue that were rubber stamped to add the images - painted and antiqued.
