It really wouldn't matter what
the season was when it comes to rose blooms
because in our garden they flower all the way from the
beginning of Spring to Winter
so I have decided to call
this new journal
because, although we are now experiencing
Autumn here in Australia,
our fragrant rose blooms started in early Spring
hence, the name.
I have used some of my favourite pre-raphaelite
images in this book
as they worked in really well with the soft
Spring colour tonings.
I also decided to bring out my embellisher,
silks, sheers, raw silk
doilies, coloured laces, in all the lovely Spring
shades and tonings
and pearl buttons.
I also found some pretty sheer pinkish fabric
covered in roses which I think
added to the effect.
From memory I think there were altogether
four signatures plus the journal covers.
I showed just a glimpse of these pages in the making
a couple of posts back
and it was claimed almost immediately from just these
two pages so
it has almost arrived at its overseas destination already!
Back cover is shown here
the journal in it's entirety looks a bit like this.

we are just so very fortunate

older ones too!
