Sailing on a moon boat down a river of stars poured from a jar. A fanciful world where starfish grow on bushes and the sun is married to the sea.
Once while snorkeling in St. John, we came across a cove that had beautiful orange starfish scattered across the ocean floor as far as the eye could see. It seemed so magical to me, like a starry sky on the bottom of the ocean. So when I heard the theme Cosmic Voyage, my mind went to combining a traditional voyage on the sea with celestial imagery.
My design features a moon boat sailing on a sea of stars being poured from a jar. Itâ€™s a fanciful world where starfish grow on bushes and the sun is married to the sea.

Beautiful work Shelly! Can't wait to receive it!
Oh, wow!!!! The decals look amazing....such a gorgeous design.
Oh wow, Margreet, I LOVE this! Thank you so much for sharing the photo! It looks so great!
Yay, the decals arrived and are up over our bed! I miscalculated that they would overlap, but I think they work fine in this "window frame" style as well. Our cat likes it, too!

Thanks, Jill! I'm excited to be working on fabric collections and getting paid for it! :) Already learning how much I DON'T know! :D A bit of stress and a lot of fun.

Thank you so much, Maria and Kim! I appreciate your support! I had to withdraw from the contest at the last minute because I got a job designing fabric somewhere else and they would not have let me contract with Kaufman in case I was lucky enough to win. I hated to withdraw, but I'm so happy I get to design fabric every day! Hugs! XO â™¥
