Inspired by Angels

Another two Angel projects to share
with you today - 
firstly another Jeanne d'Arc art inspired angel similar
to the one on my previous post

 with layers of vintage and wedding lace, broderie anglaise,
scrim and netting

with the softest shades of grey sari silk ribbon,
crystal and beads.
Secondly is this blank journal decorated with a lace and fabric
cover adorned with the sweetest angel image!

These two items are now in my Etsy shop.

The weekend is almost here where I live and we are hoping
to enjoy some blue skies, beautiful sunshine and a
walk along the beach!
Hope your weekend coming up will be just what you are wishing for.

It's That Time of Year Again!

It's that time of year when bloggers who love
to create artworks for the Festive Season
start putting their ideas into action
here are a few projects which 
I have just completed. 

 Firstly is this Jeanne d'Arc inspired art angel paper
and lace doll decoration

 which may be used as a Christmas tree or mantel decoration

 or even be left hanging on your wall or favorite place
throughout the year.

 She has been decorated in several layers of vintage laces, white
chiffon, broderie anglaise lace and embellished with a pearl
colored sari ribbon sash, seam binding and a pearl applique
backed with a glittery snowflake
ready to hang.
 Two more greeting cards with soft lace accents,
music paper and painted water color paper.

These are now up for sale in my Etsy Shop.

It is great to share these images
it is an even greater thing that you take the time to leave
a comment - thank you so much for your generosity!

A Journal for Grace and Peace Doves

 This little journal was created for Grace who is about to celebrate
here 13th Birthday. Her mother, Francie, is my hairdresser.
Now Francie asked me to create
a journal for her first daughter, Amalia,
when she turned 13 which was two and a half years ago

(Amalia's little journal)

now that it is Gracie's 13th Birthday she asked her mother
if she could also have one of those keepsakes
once again using another Pre-raphaelite image by Rosetti
called "Roman Widow" I created this little journal 
for her.

I used this recycled Battenburg lace tissue box cover for the cover
of the book - it was just the perfect size
which I manipulated, dyed
sewed it together in the centre
and this is how it looked when finished.

I added several layers of silk dyed lace, lace fabric
embroidered organza, silk and rayon fabric,
costume jewellery
and added some very old gold silk braid
from my stash. 

 I called it "Sweet Memories" for the times
when Grace can look back at what
she has  entered into her

Grace is a "nature" girl so I added a few bird images

with some French accents.


As Christmas is approaching I decided to create, along with my
angel cards, some of these Peaceful Doves

which are now available in My Etsy Shop

They might be just the right addition to your 
Christmas Tree, as a Mantel decoration
a wall decoration. 

It is hard to believe that we are only 6 weeks away from
Christmas once again! I am sure many of you
too are thinking of gifts and decorations
at this time - I always love the idea
of keeping it simple!!!

Wishing you all a pleasant weekend enjoying what
you most love
thanks again for your wonderful visits and comments.

Angels All Around!

Today I'm sharing the latest Angel cards I have created.

 This set of Peace Angels have already left my my Etsy shop
but this second set of two Peace Art Angels
 with French accents,
vintage laces, chiffon type fabric, French gift paper
and washi tape
is still available there.

There is certainly an air of peacefulness around me
when I create these and so uplifting for the soul!
 These images below are of a little journal I have
also just completed for a young teenager's birthday
so here are a couple of glimpses
until I get to show it in it's

 Wishing you all a smooth and happy start to your week!

Love and hugs, Suzy xox
