Final Pages of Journal (and then..........)




 



 
These are the final two pages of my journal .


 



 
This collaged piece I had made some time ago which I decided to include in the journal.  Both pages have been put together using some upholstery fabric as a base adding several layers including satin, silk,  printed organza, naturally dyed silk and velvet, lace and beads.
But, of course, yet to be completed are the front and back covers which will hold it all together.  I have some ideas for this which I am working on at present.  So far I must say that it has worked out reasonably well considering the fact that I am making it all up as I go.


 
From our kitchen window this morning I took this pic of two wood ducks which visit our garden every morning and evening.  They had 6 ducklings which have all grown and flown.  They have become really tame and feel very safe breeding here!

  8. Your pages are so lovely Suzi. I will be waiting to see how you put this all together. I love wood ducks and their beautiful head colors. I am so happy to hear your visit with your dad was a good one. These make for precious moments in time, don't they. I so miss my parents and I may sound a bit daffy but I find myself talking to them a lot. Hope they can hear me.
