Alcohol inks on photographic paper / Sizzix die / watercolour paper mop up
Some journal pages....
Journal 52 observations
Here I've kept things simple, one of my new stencils for the 2 pages, left one done with old paper DI, the right with shabby shutters. The stamping has been done in forest moss.
My favourite dragonfly!
DLP has a new theme for this month: texture (touchy / feely)
And this week is about fabric & the fabric of your life.
I was hunting in the many drawers of 1 of the units in my craft room and came across some samples from one of the courses I did at an Embroiderers Guild summer school, can't remember which class this particular one came from but it seemed an opportune time to breath some love into it!
It's handmade paper with some textured yarn overlaid in a grid, the yarn has been embedded with wax. It's also had some metallic wax crayon rubbed over the yarn & then that has been melted too.
The small squares are kraft paper (wrapping paper in this case) rubbed with copper wax crayon & then ironed. The squares have been stitched down with variegated acetate thread & some fine wire, seed beads & sequins have also been added.
It's nice to have taken this piece from lying abandoned in a drawer to a treasure in a journal....reminds me of good friends that I made on my annual summer school trips!
Thanks for looking :-)
