This the first finished page in my quilted beach book. It depicts Gulf Shores Alabama before the oil spill. This one uses a photo of the surf along with fabric that has been marbled using shaving cream and painted fabric. The heron was drawn on and then stitched. The right side has an ocean scene using the decrative stitches from my sewing machine. The fish are fused angelina fibers. The button is from my grandmothers button collection and the shells are from the surf! The bottle contains a letter from the ocean to the beach goers about protecting the ocean from pollution. The letter actually comes out and can be read.
