Book of the sea page 9

For this page I have embroidered onto a dyed muslin different seaweeds with various threads. There is also some distressed scrim, and a piece of dyed Kozo fibre, which looks very like seaweed when painted and manipulated. There are plenty of French knots, and a few fancy yarns.
The sea horses are painted pelmet vilene embroidered with different types of embroidery threads.
