"Through Winter's Door" Journal for Simply Neutrals Tuesday No. 12

In the northern hemisphere some of my blogging friends are
now entering "Through Winter's Door" and that is
the name of this fabric, lace and paper book
bearing the subject of "Angels"!


 I'm especially mindful of the need for angels around
at the moment with the events of the past couple of weeks and because we are now moving into the Festive Season
of Christmas.

(Now sold!)

 This book has been constructed using many beautiful
stone angels as well as Renaissance angels

on top of water colour pages layered in several mediums
including linens, brocades, printed organzas

dyed and stamped fabrics like cottons and chiffons,

some of my eco dyed silks with dyed doilies to blend in
with the varying shades of neutrals, whites, greys and browns.

 I have also been mark making with my blue paint
(and white paint too!)
here and there around and under images with 
appropriate messages like the one above
which says "Love's Forgiveness" -

 yes a virtue that needs so much practice
and patience right now and every day
really for the rest of our lives!


 It's a timely reminder for each and everyone of us!

I have also been preparing a few Art Angel Fabric kits for
anyone wishing to create their own projects, collages,
cards or journal pages using my chosen
Art Angels like these
for Christmas or anytime at all!

These and the Angel book above you can find 
in my Etsy shop here.
These images will also be part of Wen's 
and I'd love you to visit there

and see some amazing artwork and gorgeous images.

 Thank you all for always visiting and leaving such
lovely comments - you are appreciated!!!
