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
 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
 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
where you can be inspired by all of the wonderful neutral
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
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
 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

Vintage Inspiration Lace and Fabric Kits

With Christmas coming up very fast
I was thinking perhaps these 
Vintage Inspiration Kits of Lace
and French script fabrics
along with these beautiful images

 may inspire a little creativity within you!

These images are from my own collection and they come
with the bones of a little book 5.5 x 4 inches with batting
and some scripted French cotton fabrics
and a lovely selection of
vintage laces, doilies, netted flower fabric,
beaded appliques, pearl buttons
and other little bits and pieces. 

 There are so many different projects these can
be used for and they are only limited
by your imagination!

This is another similar kit but with antique
children images
and a lovely selection of more laces and French script 

These Inspiration Kits are definitely just the thing
for all of you who love these old images and laces
are now available in my Etsy shop
pop over and take a look there
as this one has already flown out the shop!

Thanks so much for looking here today dear friends!
Have a wonderful weekend!

An Eco-dyed paper and Textile Concertina - SNT No. 49

 Dear Blog friends 
here is my latest little concertina book
"Tattered whispers on the breeze"
made from handmade paper


 and inspired by the beautiful artwork of
Lynne Moncrieff of Lynnesbowsandbells blog


 It was so much fun to create
using papers from my eco-dyed little stash of silks and water colour papers
along with many other vintage page papers, tea bag papers, envelopes, vintage music, tags and other ephemera.

but what was new this time was the use of
some of Lynne's wild flower stamps


 and her nature themed Affirmation Stamps

which I so love to be inspired with!


 I also incorporated the use of 
scraps of vintage lace
which I dyed with tea, rust and some copper pipe!
All of these papers were put in together
in the dye bath!

 The book itself is only 4 x 6 inches
and what you see below is this
little bag, made from
vintage linen dyed in the same bath
to hold this sweet little treasure
of inspiring pages and affirmations!

You can read more posts like this over at
with Wen Sylvestre! Enjoy!
Thanks Wen for hosting again for another month. Our next
Simply Neutrals post will be the 50th!

 Many thanks to all of my new followers and
for leaving your kind comments.
Love to hear from you all!
Have a wonderful week!
