I loved the panel I embroidered on the deep red silk. I picked the red to carry over the red from the roof top on the casket front.
But I didn't like how the colors worked together on the side. They 'matched' but they didn't flow.
Using the same basic design but a different background I started over.

There are 2 different views of the Golden Rule Mountains on the casket. This is a new view, the mountains on the side of the Prince. In front of his mountains is a grove of trees.
The mountains sit on the lower frieze of the casket.
Above the mountains is a tapered panel on the casket. I have been experimenting with Italian Wire Mesh and combining it with the silk 'Cordon' from the Frosting Club treasure box.
This is as far as I got on that panel.
The other side of the casket holds the mountain view I've shown you before.
Again I have used the Italian Wire Mesh and Cabinet of Curiosities supplies for the background scene.

Adding the doors, the 'secret panel' (in white) and the 3D village scene completely changes the look of the casket interior.
More blank canvases to embroidery!
And by playing in Photoshop a little more I can imagine what the lower interior might look like with the casket top closed.

The Golden Rule Mountains have been backed with paper and cut away from the background fabric.
The straight edges will be covered with my cloud-like needlelace border. But the mountain top edges had me stumped.
Until I wrapped this beautiful new trim along the edge.
Just what the edge needed!

Bubbledom is one of the destinations in The World of Possibilities. So of course it will have an embroidered panel on the outside of the casket.
But all of the different places you see on the casket exterior will have an illustrated story on the inside.
I have already made a miniature version of my Red House Book and it fits in the upper section of the casket. It is 4 1/4" x 7". Each book will be that size.
So these two embroideries will be in the little book describing Bubbledom.
It is a toy shop.
This is a different 'view' of Bubbledom. It is also one of the drawings I shared with you last December.
