More Images of "Little Bird" Journal

You may remember a few posts back that I was commissioned by Gisele

to create a Nature Journal as a special gift
to give to a friend of hers
she decided to call it "Little Bird".
This name had special connotations to Gisele -
so now that her friend, Elisa, has received her gift from Gisele
I thought I would post some of the images
to share with you!

I would like to mention here that Gisele is hosting a GIVEAWAY
on her blog (see details on the Right Hand Side near the top here to check it out).

The front cover displays a collaged image of a bird
with came from Dawn at
Thank you for that lovely image Dawn!

now for some pages:

Even some gum leaves from our property

and grevillea leaves covered with vintage webbing

These are dried Ornamental Grapevine leaves
along with some
dried Hydrangea leaves
so delicate
with their veins showing through.

And finally here are the layers upon layers of lace, paper, fabric and silks.

Wishing you all a beautiful Sunday whether it is coming or going
in your part of the world.

Thankyou to all my new followers - your comments are so appreciated!

 With love,
Suzy xxx
