Inner strength

I had to think about how I wanted to interpret this weeks POSITIV>>+>>JOURNAL theme which is "your inner strength". So like the French to give you deep meaningful themes! Reminds me of all the intellectual & philosophical classes at school....

Crumpled tissue paper + DI over both pages, edged with more DI.

Die cut letters + fired brick.

I've hand stitched 4 layers of papers together: base layer is angel hair paper(stash) then paper with acrylic fibres included that I made on a course about 25 years ago with Geoff Lowe, a layer of mulberry paper printed with Indian script followed by another layer of my own paper that has bits of metallic machine embroidery threads through it. I used a variegated Caron Wildflowers thread in Burnt Toast.

A little red heart & some chit chat stickers to finish off

Hope that next week is not as deep!


  1. Hi Sally, love your thinking behind this theme, those layers look gorgeous.
