Journal - From Buds to Blooms - Items for My Etsy Shop

As there has been a bit of interest in my
Fabric Journals
I have decided to make some more for my Etsy Shop.

So here we have a new fabric vintage lace collaged journal:

I have titled this one "Buds to Blooms"

It contains 16 inner pages of stained water colour paper
all stitched and embellished with  vintage laces, sari ribbon,
scrim, fabric, braid and handmade paper.

Here are a couple of pages to give you an idea of how it looks inside.

and this

and this!
I have put little headings on each page to help people
with their thoughts and ideas!

Also in my Etsy shop I have just added another Vintage lace and collaged Needlebook.

The front cover shows an Australian Kookaburra
and it has been made along similar lines to the last few needlebooks which were displayed here quite recently.

This particular piece has been embellished with some gorgeous antique lace -
I think it originally bordered a tablecloth.

I have just been chosen to enter into a fascinating Etsy Treasury
called "Arsenic and Lace"
see the Treasury at the top of my blog.

So  pop over to my Etsy shop and see more images
if you like them at
Hope your week is going well and that everyone is
healthy and happy.

  15. Just gorgeous as always, dear Suzy! I love how you use so many layers of different fabrics and colors. Your creations have such a wonderfully opulent look. It's a great idea to give headwords in the journal. That can be very helpful to start writing something into it. Your beautiful artwork shouldn't last long in your Etsy-shop.
