My mermaid




I finished my mermaid for Camille and mailed her Monday. She was drawn onto cotton, after painting she was fused and stitched to batting. Her tail was machined embroidered. The background is dyed silk. Beads ribbon shells etc were added. I combined hand and machine embroidery.

On the reverse side I painted the Lutrador and printed a verse from a poem by Alfred, Lord Tennyson onto hand-made paper.
I was so impressed with Lutrador I ordered a couple of yards from Misterart and it arrived yesterday.
