Great job on the watercolor stellou! First time??? I am so jealous!

Blupaisan- No worries about doing the 'words' part. I think in the swap rules it said we didn't have too!

Sailorgirlbonk- you illustrated Paprika and Duff just like I would picture them! Great job!

calluna- love the pic you used for annabel lee! she is so cute!

Hey guys, I have a thought (well, actually 2)

1 - Would it maybe make sense for everyone to turn their 1st post into the "complete story" post, so we can all see how the pictures flow together in order?

2 - Would people mind posting the artist info because I am dying to see all of those as well Smiley

I learned all my morality from the My Little Pony Movie:

Morning Glory: They need our help, Rosedust!

Rosedust: It's not our fight, Morning Glory.

Megan: Yes it is! It's everyone's fight!

Lickety-Split: Yeah! Everybody has to help everyone else!

I have received not one but TWO Shocked pages from Sailorgirlbonk made in graphite, pen and ink and markers, you are spoiling me THANK YOU Smiley

First there is a gorgeous picture of the giant in bed - that's exactly how I pictured his head....and by the way I love his quilt Wink


Then there is an extra page of a super duper Geisha on the Japanese lute I LOVE IT 

Then she sent me a lovely typed page of the text
I have posted the giant in my first post so you can see where he fits in the complete story

I just typed up my artist info  Tongue so it's nothing fancy, but if anyone did any worth sharing then I'd also like to see them!

And I love the idea of seeing the illustrations in order with the text, I will be doing that when I post my last page  Smiley (hopefully in the next few days since I have received it)

I think that I have all the sent/receive/posted info correct, but if everyone can double check the first post in the gallery to be sure that would be great  Smiley

here is what I just got from Kartiana! What she chose to do is sooo cool!
Here is a close-up of Duff:

I love the fat yellow rope hanging down and just everything! How it all blends in.  Thank you so much, Kartiana!

Here is my story with all illustrations!!!  Cheesy


          Part 1
She, the virgin of the air,
Beautiful maiden. Nature's child,
Long maintained in holiness
Her eternal maidenhood
In the far-horizoned heavens,
Level meadows of the air.

But in time she wearied of it,
Was estranged from this odd living,
Always being by herself,
Ever living as a virgin
In those far-horizoned heavens,
In those vast and empty spaces

So at length she then descended
To the seawaves down below,
To the open clear sea surface
Out upon the open ocean.
Suddenly a storm wind blew,
Out of the east an angry blast
Blew the water to a foam
Heaving up the rollers high.

By the wind the maid was rocked,
On a wave the maid was driven
Round about the blue sea surface
By the whirling whitecaps lifted
Where her womb the wind awakened
And the sea-foam impregnated.

Thus a full womb now she carried,
Long she bore her burdened belly,
Seven hundred years she bore it
For nine lifetimes of a man,
Yet the borning was unborn,
Still the fetus undelivered.

          Part 2
As the mother of the water
Aimlessly the virgin drifted:
She swam eastward, she swam westward,
She swam south and northwestward,
Swimming round the whole horizon
In the anguish of her birth pangs,
In her belly's bursting pains.
Yet the borning was unborn,
Still the fetus undelivered.

Then she fell to weeping softly,
Said a word and spoke out thus:
"Woe is me, the water wanderer,
Luckless girl, misfortune's child!
Now already I'm in trouble,
Shelterless beneath the sky,
Ever rocking on the seawaves
To be cradled by the wind,
To be driven by the billows
On these far-extending waters,
Endlessly repeated billows.

"Better had it been for me
To have stayed the airy virgin
Than to be as I am now
Drifting as the water-mother.
Ifs too cold for me to stay here,
Painful to be drifting here,
Wallowing in this watery waste.

"0 thou Ukko, lord of all,
Hear me, thou the all-sustainer:
Come, 0 come where thou art needed;
Come, 0 come where thou art called!
Loose the maiden from her misery
And the woman from her womb-ache;
Come thou quickly, soon arriving
Where thy help is sooner needed."

          Part 3
Then a bit of time passed over
Like a tiny rash of rain,
When a scaup, the honest bird,
Came on hovering here and there
Searching for a nesting place,
For a spot to build her home on.

She flew eastward, she flew westward,
Flew to northwest and to southward
But she cannot find a spot
Even in the worst of places
Where to build her needful nest,
Where to take up her abode.

Hovering, fluttering back and forth
Thus she thought and pondered it:
"Must I make my home on wind,
Build my hut upon the billows
Where the wind can blow it over
Or a wave can wash away?"

So the mother of the water,
Water mother, airy maiden,
Raised her knee above the surface
And her shoulder from the wave
As a refuge for the scaup
And a welcome nesting place.

Then that scaup, the lovely bird,
Fluttering round and hovering over
Spied the water-mother's knee
Lifted from the sea's blue surface;
Took it for a grassy tussock
Or a tuft of new-grown turf.

I have received a stunning illustration for the first part of my story from Curiousfae. I LOVE IT I am afraid that you will have to describe it  asI have no idea how you made it  Shocked Shocked It is on photo paper. With it came a lovely typed page which I haven't scanned (my camera is playing hide and seek Roll Eyes and a super ATC


I have added it to my first post so you can see it in situ

PS  I love Sailorgirlbonk's drawings of the Kalevala myth

Let's just say I know my way around Photoshop! It's all graphic arts basically. I have lots of clip art, digital ephemera and a tablet that I can draw on that transfers right to my computer. This is how I do all my scrap booking and ATC's too. I love it.

I am relieved to see you liked it because I wasn't sure how well 'crafting the pages digitally' would go over! Thought you might feel I was cheating in some way!!

Here is my wonderful illustration from Stellou! Unfortunately you can't tell from the scan that parts are cut out...like the moon/boat and the stars and filled with glitter!
She also sent me a musical rendition of the lullaby on cd, she playing recorder and her husband playing piano! BEAUTIFUL! Wish I could post it here somehow....


Thanks again stellou (and hubby)!
