Title: Favorite of the Harem
This is a double page layout documenting Adam's infatuation with the blue teddy bear. So fitting for his personality too, as he is such a cuddly and tactile little guy--loves to be hugged and does not let me leave out of the house unless he gives me a hug & a kiss.
Adam has a whole collection of bears, and spreads his love around to all of them. But in the morning, I always find him clutching the blue one once again.
I love the focal photo on the 2nd page :) Do you notice how he's hugging the blue teddy, yet behind his back, with a stretched out arm, he is tickling another one--what a flirt! I hope that's not a sign of things to come :D
Technical aspect of this page: I was recreating an Arabesque look to this page-Adam as a sultan with his harem of teddy bears. I used lots of Middle eastern motifs here: deep rich hues, gold and jewels.
Lots of detail is lost in the scanning of this page, but it's difficult to properly photograph double pages.
The plum ribbon on the 1st page is adorned with crystal gems and seed beads. The loop borders are punched with a Martha Stewart border punch. The plum colored flourishes are from a Quickutz border die. On the second page green border I sewed on gold seed beads with gold thread.
Thanks so much for looking!
