Camelot spread for Terrie

I've finished my spread for Terrie in our TipTopJournals group. Terrie's album has the theme of Avelon, The Round Table, Kind Arthur, Camelot etc. You've got the idea by now. As I'm the one who determines which artists swap with each other each month, I had a bit of advance notice that Terrie would be coming next. So when I was at the Peebles second-hand book sale at the beginning of this month and discovered an extremely dilapidated children's book with a cover which looked like the mice had given it a good go but which was about King Arthur I added it to my pile. .
I set to work and made a fabric collage in the usual way (as posted on earlier blogs) and used torn pages as well as torn bits of the cover in my collage. From the resulting collage I cut 2 8x8" pieces and for page 1 I added gold trim (after all, these were quite regal pages) to 2 of the sides. I also adorned the page with a fabric image from the Pre-Raphaelite Women sheet from Alphastamps which I surrounded with a ribbon (also Alphastamps) and size 11 gold seed beads. The 3 gold artbits and the red rose in the bottom left corner are from LostArtCreations (Terrie's own shop!)
The other page has the title for the entire spread which is: The Queen in Peril and I've added the queen herself in the shape of a fabric image (Caroline Otero sheet from Alphastamps). I adorned the Queen with many jewels i.e. beads. The little queen image, part of the collage, received a gold crown (LostArtCreations). This page was also embellished with the same trim at the bottom so that the 2 pages run into each other when they are side by side.
