This project began with a drawing.
I transferred the drawing to my embroidery fabric and colored in the design with fabric makers. I stitched the outline/drawing with stem stitch.
After stitching the outline I went back and added more color.
But I'm not done!
I re-sized a photo of the embroidery to fit into one of the casket drawers. I printed out 8 little images on one sheet of photo print glossy paper.
Then I started having fun cutting away segments of the image, layer by layer.
I'm not sure what this technique is called. I think it was very popular in the late 70's.
I used flat wooden toothpicks as spacers glued between layers.
It isn't a tunnel book exactly but just another experiment along those lines.

I would love to have your support!

Here is the Mermaid's grotto in the Golden Rule Mountains. The Bubbles rising out of the water will continue on the panel above.
This is for the side of the casket above the panel of the Princely Dragon.
And yes, the mountains do extend beyond the edge of the frieze. They will be freestanding to balance the windows on the casket front.
Inside the casket works continues. Each drawer will contain its own little world.
Stitched as a tunnel books this one is a fanciful boat sailing on a moonlit night.
