New Journal

This is my latest journal on my Etsy. I completed it a little while ago but have only just got around to photographing some of the pages. I decided to group them so each mosaic shows four double pages.


This is the cover, it has a jewellery pin attached for decoration.


These are some of the pages showing fabrics and papers.







There are lots more pages, this is just a sample. SOLD


I purchased the sari fabrics from my friend Julia she has now added some to her Etsy store. They are fabulous fabrics and Julia puts the colours together so well. They are such great value.



Our drought has definitely broken. On the 31st of October we had more rain in one day than the average total for the whole month. The weather had warmed up too so the garden has gone crazy, it looks like the tropics. That's just a snippet above of the lushness.

So glad that you have some rainfall to relieve the drought and to nourish your gardens!!! Happy Spring to you!!!!

Like me, your journals get fatter! But unlike me, they continue to get more lovely. Your garden looks so beautiful - the rain has obviously contributed to the lushness and those orchids are just gorgeous.

As I think I said recently, I just adore these; so rich and full of juiciness. They lift my heart and give me such joy to see them. I must REALLY wend my way back through your recent posts and take a closer look. Thanks again for sharing all the images.

Your garden does look very tropical and exotic. The combination of the rain and heat really kick starts mother nature back into life after the winter months. Unfortunately in my garden the weeds seem to flourish too!
Divine journal pages too, full of vibrancy.

Great to see so many rich colourful pages. My fingers always itch to open your journals. We've also been having Spring rains and the garden has taken off. Love your orchids!

Lovely warm colours, just what is needed on a cold, wet and windy November morning in the UK.
I now have a wood burning tool - do you use this on 'fun foam'. I wondered about fumes and fire risk?
