Vintage Inspiration Kits - Simply Neutrals Tuesday No 55

Dear friends
today I want to share a Vintage Inspiration Kit
I have put together for you.
Sometimes we wish to create little books but we don't often have
either just the right materials to combine together,
the right images or papers on hand
not to mention
the inspiration to put it all together
so to make it easy for you
I have come up with this gorgeous little book

 





















filled with 24 pages of all sorts of media
including a doily, lace appliques, fine vintage laces, script
fabric, some of my eco-dyed silk, felt, burnout velvet, some
handmade dyed stamped pages, some water color paper dyed then stamped and stenciled with flowers, sari ribbon and a mother of pearl button.






 



 Now of the 5 kits I created similar to the book above
(but with different images) I only have two
left and these have different images but you can choose
which ones you like from these two kits
and
they are available in my Etsy shop

♥♥♥♥
Please note as at 12.4. 19 I still have one kit
available if you wish to contact me
by email
at suziqu@tpg.com.au
♥♥♥♥






I often get requests for these sorts of Vintage Inspiration Kits
so here's your chance to acquire one.

Today I'm also linking to Wen's Simply Neutrals Tuesday party


 


and as Wen is taking a break it will be the last one for you
to check out for a while. So pop over and see what
neutral posts she shares with us today!

So many thanks for always visiting and welcome 
to all my new followers. I hope you receive
some new inspiration here with me!
Enjoy!

Love Suzy xxx

Textures and Plant Dyed Art in my studio - SNT No. 53

Dear Readers
I think you all know about my passion for
creating with vintage textures, textiles, fabrics and laces
well just a quick post
to show you a few I have on my work table
at the moment!

I've started the new year naturally
with creating journals and this is a glimpse of the
next one I have on my desk!

 





These two images are from the new book which is
a WIP so I won't spoil your viewing 
yet! 
 
 


 and these are a few items I have used to date!
♥♥♥

Also on my table are these glorious silks and doilies which
have been plant dyed!




 as well as some papers which I dyed at the same time!


 


 Look at the beautiful soft colours
and 
impressions from the plants!



 The little artworks below are some which
I created from these
which
have now been sold!





 



 That beautiful rose image was created by saving
the actual rose from the dye bath which
had been flattened in the plant press.
The wet result was still so beautiful that I decided
to photograph it and print it out onto handmade paper
so this then became the focal point of the
artwork!
It was a rare opportunity which I took advantage of!









 Linking this post today to Simply Neutrals Tuesday


Thanks so much for coming to view my artworks here
and much welcome to my new followers! 

Wishing you all a Wonderful Valentines Day
dear friends!

A Journal Collage - Simply Neutrals Tuesday No. 52

Here we are dear friends into another
brand New Year
and a whole new year of more creativity
and inspiration - so very exciting to me
and
 I find it always helpful to look back before looking forward to new creativity so here are just a few of my journals created in 2018.

 


I have no particular direction in mind
for this new year so far
except that I know I wish to challenge myself
with some new media
so we shall see where this will lead!

 I have been so enjoying all the inspiration from
Pinterest this last year and am slowly
building some new boards
to entice my mojo!

So come check me out there! 

 Enjoy the ride my friends!
Wishing you all a peaceful, promising, healthy and joyful
 New Year for 2019
and
 thanks so much for your wonderful comments 
and encouragement always!
Thank you also for continuing to visit me here and
hope my new followers enjoy my posts 
throughout the year too!
♥♥♥♥♥


I'm linking my first post for the year to

images there and even add your own if you desire!

Love and hugs, Suzy xxx

Angels for Christmas - 50th Celebration of SNT

Now we all know that we need angels 
in our lives to lift us up
and 
give us our wings to fly.
They are always around us guiding us and showing us the way!

I wanted to share these angels I created three years ago which
were recently published in the Winter Edition
of
 Crazy Quilt Quarterly magazine.

I share there a little tutorial on how I created these.




 

 I once again created several more recently which 
I listed in my Etsy 





 At the time of creating this post
there were these two girls left 
but now I see just one remains!
 



The inspiration for these creations came from
my friend Lilla Levine. Lilla has been
sharing her beautiful French creations on her blog
now for many years with videos that you can
follow along with also. 

 
This month is the celebration of
which is where I am sharing my post. So please
pop over there and look at all the wonderful entries this month
along with a wonderful giveaway from our hard working
and very talented host, Wen.

♥♥♥♥♥

Many thanks always for your lovely visits and
for the kind comments that you leave.
I really appreciate that so much!

Love to you all! xxx  Suzy
