Made for The Raging Sloth in the Make Me A Rainbow R-2 swap.
 


Closed, the front is purple wool felt fused to a thick layer of fulled red cashmere sweater with cut out circles stitched in a rainbow assortment of thread, the whole thing stuck on to a piece of distressed mirrored card stock:


Open, I don't know how her face got so serious but maybe we'd all feel that way too if we were standing around without any skin covering up our insides?


The figure lifts up to reveal a quote:


Inside cover, the background is a print from a recent Masterboard swap. The wire scribble with beads was woven on a pin board I rigged and glued into place.


The back, pretty sure that's one of geekgirl's gelli prints:


The sides are covered with 2 types of washi tape that's secured in place by layers of nail polish (my favourite "paint"):


The outside was inspired by this pin, the inside as I'm sure you can see was completely inspired by this pin. I mostly wanted to figure out how to accomplish a layered, filled, multi-hued illustration like the figures shown. I didn't quite get the sketchy impression, my thread was way too carefully placed. It was a great experiment though, I've never done anything like it before.

I started with the organs:


Filling it in:


With a solid black outline to define things:


Fun and super weird, right? LOL, I think my partner liked it. She's kinda fun and weird herself Cheesy.

Unexpected excellence, crafty.   Unexpected in the art, not in the artist. 

You are limitless in talent.  Thank you for sharing.

This is one of my favorite things I now own! Its just super interesting and combines lots of my favorite things! Outa so cool that you wove that wire piece and its fun how the bears shift around a little bit. Its a very interactive piece which I think is great fun and really unique! Thank you!!!

Absolutely outstanding! I love all the detail pictures, and the progress shots, and the links to some of the things that inspired you. Your stitching is impeccable, and the bead mess and art card details just make this a delight to explore. Cheesy

Thanks all! Glad it is liked. It was for a rainbow theme so needed lots of colour. I enjoyed cramming as many of my idea as possible into that little space. Isn't funny how sometimes going small stretches you creativity in a big way?
