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 

 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
impressions from the plants!

 The little artworks below are some which
I created from these
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
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
 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

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!
