Three Small Journals

Dear Friends
I am a very fortunate artist being able
to draw on a large amount of
mixed media supplies in the form of textiles,
vintage laces and fabrics as well as
handmade paper and
wonderful vintage images!

So from these I have just completed a set of three small journals
incorporating all of these with

sentiments of music!


 The books have been compiled with several pages
of hand made paper waiting for you
to write your thoughts from the heart, 
lines you wish to remember or
to store your secrets 
between yourself or your God!


 These images convey a sampling of the
pages in the book with vintage women,


stamping and stenciling

 embroidered patches of antique silk fabrics,
printed cottons and tapestry fabrics

layered on top of each other
with pockets sitting opposite for tags.




 Images have been embellished with
pieces of old lace, dyed cheesecloth, eco-paper and buttons.

 Oh and then there are these pieces of
silk organza roses - just perfectly blending
into the pages.


These little books which measure about 7 inches x 5 inches
are now available in my Etsy shop
at the time of posting this there are still 2 available.

Many thanks for looking today and hope you are all
having a very fruitful week!

  7. I wonder how many ways there are to say that you've outdone yourself once again? Seems I'm always saying that your latest creation is so beautiful....and then you do another one....and it's just as wonderful (if not more so). Would love to be a little fly on your wall watching you create!
