A Couple of Journal Pages and Cards

A few more pics of my exploits
into my next journal of
heritage organic vegies and plants.

I was inspired with this idea whilst I was wondering around our own vegi and

flower garden when I remembered that I had in my possession a not so Vintage
but very beautiful Italian calender which inspired me to create
around some of these most gorgeous heritage plant drawings.

The binding for this journal will be made from some vintage hessian
saved from two chairs which were actually beyond
I was very fortunate to be able to recycle it in my
latest journal.

You might remember from my last post that I have also used
paper shopping bags as the basis
for the pages.

Thought I would also share with you two more cards
I have made recently.
These have been created in shades of olive and deep turquoise greens.

I have used printed silk on serviette with laces and machine embroidered

The second one also from the pre-raphaelite area has been embellished with silk, crushed velvet, lace fabric and silk-dyed lace.

Hope you are all having a fulfulling week in your latest endeavours.
Thank you everyone for your love and continued support and a special
I shall endeavour to visit you all soon!

  1. Aloha Suzy,
    Your journal pages are fantastic. TFS

  2. Your work is always so pretty, Suzy. I love looking at all the detail.

  3. Hi sweetest Suzy,-
    fantastic pages, dear, I love the soft tones you used here, and the binding will look gorgeus with all those brown colors-
    And the cards- Suzy they,they are so very beautiful, they would be gorgeus together -4 of them in an old windows-frame-the pre-raphaelite window -I can just see that beautiful art for my inner eye.
    Sweet friend- I only saw your letter this morning-but it made me happily smiling.
    I wish you a good and quiet evening, my dear.
    I love you-

  4. Hi Suzi, I would like a peek at your stash, you always seem to have just the right snippet of this or that, like an Italian calendar and some hessian! Your interpretation of what you do with these humble materials is so fantastic, sometimes the words cannot express. xox Corrine
