Well this week the Journal 52 challenge took me right back to my City & Guilds Creative Embroidery days!

Inspiration board is what is called for and I just dived into my box of bits that do it for me.....

There's a lot on here : left book page (love the writing) an artists "hiland coo" a label wrapped with silk thread, a paper artsy metal image, some stencilled paper, butterflies die cut from alcohol inked paper,a knight on his charger (history buff), a crazy looking lady (love the colours/textures), a gelli printed piece +corset! some fishtails! assorted silk thread.

right: a fashion ad, more variegated threads,lace, jute & hessian, a piece of canvas work with assorted stitches, a piece of correspondence paper, book, a couple of artists pictures, seashells, a gem, flower, more threads.

I'm a great lover of pink/orange & turquoise/green combinations as well as working with texture although that is mainly in my textiles (when I do them which seems to be seldom these days)


  1. Wow, love the bright colours nd additions of textures. A real eclectic mix of images, love these pages.
