Tome - Page 4

Mid May and I've finished the April page of my Stargaze tome....The front of the page is painted - both the background, the sea weed and the mermaid. I used puff paint at the bottom and put in sand and sea shells while the paint was wet. The star fishes, bigger shells and sea horse is embroidered. Inside the big sea shell is a mini mermaid doll - she was tricky to make, she's so small! The back of the page is also painted - this time painted tissue paper. The tree trunk is puff paint again - the leaves are snippets of green scraps covered with organza and heavily quilted - the ground multicoloured snippets of fabric and fancy yarns covered with painted vlisofix - quilted with variegated tread and burned with a soldering iron.
Lots of details on this page - hopefully it's possible to have a closer look by clicking on the photos!
The size of the page is app 9 x 9".

They look really good, Lise. Are these pages heavy?

These pages are gorgeous, Lise! You have the makings of a real treasure! Love the mermaids and all their details. Really love the tree and its surrounds. Your quilting is wonderful and all the little extras you've added. Great fun to look at and study! xox - b
