The Pre-Raphaelite Vision

As you can see I have collaborated my first Fabric Art Journal into a slideshow at the top of my blog for those wishing to take an overall look at it.
I have enjoyed this work so much that I have decided to launch into a new, but much smaller in size, journal
(6" x 8"). The previous journal measures approx. 9" x 12" with quite a few extensions! I made this journal so that I could add text and pictures at a later stage thus leaving space opposite full collage pages.
The theme of this new one will be to honour some of the women who were painted (sometimes obsessively) by a small group of painters who formed the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in 1848. These painters included Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Holman Hunt and John Everett Millais. Some of these collages will include small portraits of women such as Jane Burden and Elizabeth Siddal. This art work is among my most favourite!

  6. Congratulations on a sumptious art piece! Gee...looking forward to seeing your next creations. The Pre-Raphaelite Themed works will be an exciting topic.

  7. Suzi the slide show is fantastic. I really love all the beautiful pages you have created. I am curious as to how you put the book together. Any hints or suggestions... I can see me now creating this very fat book with no idea on how to keep it together. I see you used eyelets, I think? I would love to do this. I just love all your colors and textures.

  8. Love the slide slow. Seeing the journal in this format really gives an incredible overview. Love all the textiles and TEXTURES! Your "stash" must be something else!!!!!
    The pre-raphaelite above - judging from this page, the journal will be stunning.... Love everything you do Suzy....

  9. Thank you to all my lovely blogging friends for such kind comments about my journal. AND thank you also for your support along the way with all your encouragement. I hope it has given you too some inspiration or new ideas for your creativity!
    Hugs Suzy

  10. I can't get over the amount of detail you put into each page. Now I'm off to watch the slideshow!

  11. Hi Suzi,

    What an inspiration you are to me!! I am just starting a fabric journal....actually I have started three of them. Each one I add bits and pieces to as I collect them. It is sooo addicting and very soothing as well.

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful creations with all of us, I know I appreciate you very much!

    Love and Hugs,


  12. Suzi your journal is divine! Such gorgeous work. I'm so happy you stopped by my blog. I just became a follower of yours as I want to be able to come back and see more of your fiber work, it all looks delish.

  13. Suzi, most serious artists work in series. This is the way I like to work. Exploring a subject, focusing on different aspects of it. I will be very interested in seeing what you come up with.

  14. Wonderful! Inpired to get moving with my next book project. Thank you!
