The Never Ending Story

This Fabric Book may take forever so i,m blogging as far as i have got with it, 6"x6" in size,I,m using Batik fabric as a base onto felt,lots of beading!this photo is the true colours,the others look a bit blue,dont know why !

The back cover i have used toilet paper,yep really lol,its called paper casting,I first got 9 sheets of toilet paper and my "Daisy" rubber stamp then using a water spray bottle, i sprayed each layer onto the stamp,using a stencil brush to push in while wet,then leave to dry,gently peel off,then paint ! so simple.
The first inside pages

This a layered page after the style of Beryl Taylor,my favorite Mixed Media Artist!I have used moulding paste with a stencil for the little flowers then painted.

The open book,I have used 140LB watercolour paper for the pages and sewn in the centres,leaving the silks hanging to bead at a later date.So hopefully i can design each page in fabric layering up onto felt etc, then glueing each onto the watercolour pages.
Here,s hopeing its all going to work out :))
