Playing with the Charming Prince

My part of the fabulous scroll journal contains images
of my work in the same materials as the work.
A little paint, a little paper, some fabric, and a little glitter just for fun:-)

Swamp box for royal comfort.

Two fleur-de-lis for his royal heritage and a lily pad for his amphibian heritage.

The fleurs are satin fused to felt, the pad velvet and satin with beading in the center.
(Fluer-de-lis are stylized lilies, wink, wink:-)

Here is the young prince in his velvet pants and
pleather boots standing next to his box.

Following Robyn's statement "let's play", I took him in a whimsical direction.
His frog feet are fabric that has been heat bonded right to the rigid cast of his original feet.
They fit into his boots so he can "pass".
(It's probably best that he travel without his boots on because I'm not sure how his feet would react to prolonged boot wearing.)
Looking forward to seeing what he becomes next!

LOVE what you've done, Talitha! I love that he's hiding his frog's feet under Princely duds.

Those feet are absolutely prince-like!! And his pants are definitely very sporting.
