Journal "Through Winter's Door" - New Work!

Most of my followers here know me through
my artworks with fabric and fibre mostly,
as I adventure outside of my comfort zone
into the world of paints and brushes I have completed
a new journal.


 Using one of my favorite subjects "Stone Angels"
I have entitled it
"Through Winter's Door"

I have stenciled, inked, painted, patched, experimented 
dyed and sewn

 and when angels are close to your heart
the art comes easily!


 Some of this vintage fabric I have even painted
and stamped. Behind these fabrics you can
see my swirling mind expressed with paints


 I'm really a beginner in this area
but using my handmade brush
I've made a start!

With my awl I scribed text onto painted and 
gessoed pages and with free machine stitching
scribed "love and guidance".


It's all about letting yourself go
giving it a "go"!



I think that is the key to it all!

  4. What a wonderful post...You are amazing. Love the new adventure you have shared with us. So many beautiful unique treasures your have created. Thanks for sharing your special talents with us. Sure made my morning coffee break very pleasant.

  5. Wow indeed Suzie! I may have to 'steal' some of the elements (inspiration) as, I think I will make a journal for my Nephews' wife, she would love the Angels.
    Now, must go and search for some Angels! We've got a lovely Angel statue near the village school, so, I will start with a photo of that. It's a War memorial and it is so beautiful.
    Thanks once more for your beautiful artwork and showing us Bloggers what can be achieved! xxx

  6. Be still my heart. Oh, I just love, love your new journal. What a masterpiece this is.
    Yes, you are amazing, dear Suzy:)
    Hugs and love,

  7. It is the most beautiful thing you've ever made. It is right at the top of my list of things I would like to make. I don't know how to print on fabric so I would need some pretty printed art but I have been collecting vintage fabric and lace. You've inspired me my friend. Sweet hugs, Diane

  8. I'm speechless! This new journal is totally awesome. Congratulations on your adventure into new techniques and your lovely angel inspirations. This is a wonderful piece of artwork. Thank you for sharing it with us.

  16. Trust me when I say this, Suzy ... in no way or fashion does this look like you are a beginner. Absolutely not.

    Rather, it appears that you were born creating just like this.


  17. Hello dearest Suzy, Welcome to the "out of comfort zone" ;)!!! Isn't it fun to try something different from time to time? You did great! I love your painted and stamped pages and your fabric pages are certainly fabulous as well.
    Have fun playing with the paint brush :)!
    Hugs to you,

  18. Loving the mixed media, so many different paths you can travel down. The kits are a good idea, too.

  19. Oh wow oh wow dear Suzy, it's absolutely stunning!! It's one of my most favourite pieces of art of your hand so far! Gorgeous work, beautiful layers, great combining of the paints and papers and fabrics, just wonderful and utterly awesome! And so good to see you're experimenting and exploring as well. Good on ya :) Hope to see many more of your mixed media works. By the way, I see the influences of Nellie's work here, but with your very own unique and beautiful twist to it. Sending you love and hugs and very sunny smiles from heat-waved-Netherlands.
