Finished at last

My sample journal is finished at last and should be at Berry Patchwork by now. If you live up that way, you can drop in and see it. I'll be teaching a two day workshop there on August the 30th and 31st. There are still places available, here's the link to find out more. Berry Patchwork

the spine with added buttons

hand painted daffodils with sun printed fabric

I make my own masks from plastic or cardboard

hand painted artichokes and wattle

Thanks again for visiting and your kind comments.

I've been doing quite a lot of gelli printing lately, so I'll have photos shortly.

Back soon.

More pages

I've been so busy creating more journal pages and looking after my grandchildren. Their Mum will finish her course tomorrow and will then be able to say she's a certified Dietician. I sometimes feel that I'm certifiable after looking after them and trying to meet my deadlines, but they add so much joy to my life, and are all showing strong tendencies towards art (not that I'm trying to force them in any way). Just a few more photos of the journal.

a felt embellished tree

I like adding worry dolls, pieces of knitted fabric and jersey shirt buttonhole bands to my pages

watercolour daffodils and collage papers

more watercolour flowers

ribbon that has been stitched then burnt through the layers

fabrics, labels and papers were all stitched to these pages.

Thanks again so much for dropping by and your lovely comments.
I really will try to post more often and show other things than my journal pages.
