Peeking Closely at "Tattered Angels"

Just thought I might share here with you
some close up peeks at
"Tattered Angels" Journal

before it heads off to the U.K.

to give you a feel for the textures, rich colours,

braids, and laces I used.

There has been lots of mixing of colours 
and overdyeing of fabrics,
laces and doilies
new and old 

to achieve the desired effect.

Layer upon layer the pages grow!

Thank you so kindly to everyone who has left
such an inspiring comment about this

  29. Oh my gosh, Suzy,

  30. I was not aware of your blog until you left a lovely comment on mine. This is one truly amazing work of art and labor of love. I read a bit of the back story on it, and saw even more images. This truly IS a gorgeous book with layers upon layers of beauty and goodness.

    You asked about sealing. I suspect you were asking about the metal, which would also apply to any paper. I use a product I got at my Household Hazardous Waste Swap and Shop, but I have seen it at the local craft store (JoAnns Fabrics and Crafts). It is a spray sealer called Krylon Matte Finish Spray Sealer, and since Krylon is a fairly popular brand name, I suspect you could get it in Australia.

    You could always use a cheap hairspray to seal the rust in your paper and metal. I used to buy Aqua Net (back in the late 80s), but I think they have discontinued it, now. It was aerosol and boy it was sticky! I have extremely short hair, so never used it for hair, but it was a great sealer. Be sure whatever you get it is aerosol.

    However, if you were wanting to seal fabric, you neutralize it using baking soda and water (I do this in my kitchen sink), then washing in a gentle cycle in your washing machine. I hope that helped.
