Description: This is the tale of the Tsarevich Ivan and his most noble quest to catch the firebird who has been stealing the golden apples of his father, the This is the tale of the Tsarevich Ivan and his most noble quest to catch the firebird who has been stealing the golden apples of his father, the Tsar Vyslav Andronovich. With the aid of a kind grey wolf, the young prince completes his quest and wins the heart and hand of his own true love, Tsarevna Elena the Fair! Turn of the century Russian book illustration is one of my many micro obsessions, and when it's paired with folk tales (another micro obsession), look out! This fabric is an homage to Ivan Bilibin, Boris Zvorykin, and all the other superb artists who created those sumptuous, ornate, jewel toned treasures. For coordinating fabrics check out dhawktx's shop and find lovely treasures like this gem...http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/644186

nancy_lee_moran_designs says: Mesmerizing! The variety and depth of the green colors is contrasted with a lively, flowing firebird. Your art reminds me of that of Kinuko Y. Craft and of Russian lacquer boxes, in the best sense!

redmoun...

redmountain says: Hello, I LOVE this pattern in both the daytime and the night time pattern! IT IS STUNNING! I have some questions first as the spoonflower options listed are bit confusing to me and very limited. 1. is the daytime version of the firebird available in wallpaper as well? If not, can you PLEASE please make it available as wallpaper? I would really like to use this beautiful daytime firebird pattern on the walls of a very long hallway in my home. The daytime pattern colors work better for that space for me. (Though I adore BOTH versions) 2. the image of the firebird wallpaper on spoonflower shows the pattern laid out vertically--so the design is shown sideways. That is not how I would like to order or lay out the pattern on my walls. I want to order the rolls (customizable in size) so that when I lay the pattern down on my walls it looks like a continuous -picture-horizontal-mural in my hall. I don't want to display it vertically as the spoonflower site depicts. Can you please advise asap? Also, is the image size customizable? Will the image adjust according to scale of the size of the wall? . I would love to purchase this (daytime) pattern according to how I described it to you, so your prompt response is appreciated! :) Thank you so much!

ceanirm...

ceanirminger says: Thank you everybody for your sweet, sweet comments. The holiday weekend gave me more time to add details to this entry, though not as much time as I needed (Vo and Jo, you had me inspired to go for a watercolor, but lying around and bad time management reduced my plans to plain old markers, though I did add some gold paint, for pizazz!). Cfh designs, I work on a mac, so when I finish there is a command to "save for web", which does all of the thinking and reducing for me, making my image into a gif, though I have no technological training to say what it's doing, I just cross my fingers and hope it loads! Sammyk, I was afraid the border hemmed it in too much, so I opted out, but I'll keep it around and maybe do a sister fabric? Thank you all again and I'll brook no slinking!!!! This contest is probably going to end up a 30 way tie! All the designs I've seen so far are major contenders!
