Bob In The Wilderness

This is Bob. He is lost in a desolate, windswept landscape with only his balloon for company. Hopefully one day he will meet a fellow lonely creature that doesn't want to eat him and doesn't look like a tasty snack.

Background is water soluble pastels, covered with layers of organza. Bob and his balloon are appliqued felt, trees are embroidered in black DMC cotton, rocky ground is various threads (including coton a broder, tapestry wool and perle of different thicknesses) with french knots, bullion knots and various other high relief stitches.

Thanks to the latest issue of Crafty magazine, I have managed to take a semi decent picture of Bob using a kitchen roll and some A3 paper.
