Very long post

I've just finished my latest journal and have added it to my etsy store, these are just some of the pages. There are one hundred in total, consisting of fabric, some hand dyed, my decorated papers and some blank watercolour paper, well as blank as I can get, I hate seeing plain white paper so they all have a little decoration, but still have room to work on. I've done lots of stitching in this journal and have added prints and original pieces of my art.

SOLD









































I purchased a beautiful painting from Magaly Ohika's etsy store after reading her article in Cloth Paper Scissors. It arrived today and it's even more beautiful in reality. I love Magaly's style, her work is so unique. You can see her work on her blog The Itsy, Bitsy Spill.



Finally I'm busy working on a postcard size piece of art for Emma. It's her birthday soon and she hopes to get fifty people to swap a postcard size piece of art with her to celebrate a major birthday. If you want to join in visit her blog here, it's a great idea. I can't show the piece yet but will once she's received it.
