Long title sorry but hard to explain. I was sat on a ferry just staring at the sea when I realised I had to make this. Its supposed to look like the ocean/weather maps. The fabric was white, I dyed it very pale blue sort of tye-dye but hated it so painted over it with a mixture of oil, acyrillic and liquid silver leaf. I added wave detail with hot glue, then stitched it, then sewed on beads then silver leafed bits again. Its backed and then mounted onto a clock mechanism. Its small (25cm) because I only had a small gap it had to fit into on my wall!
