New pages

A couple of the dictionary challenge pages to start off...
A...Ape and fossilised Amber, brown inks & a touch of White Uniball pen

Art prompts galore 
Blue and Black //Scavenger list:stripes,blue paper,3 stickers,a dragonfly or ladybug, a flower,a quote,circles,A triangle,Tape - I actually managed to include the whole lot this week!
The dragonflies actually have sparkly wings as I painted them with tattered Angel glimmer gloss.

Journal 52: stitched or unraveled

I have used a piece that was a sample I made ages ago! I painted some splotches onto Kraft paper, crumpled it & then rubbed with antique gold gilding wax, the paper has felt behind it and then I stitched.

Top left is perlé thread that's been machine stitched to create a cord & then knotted before being couched onto the paper,
Top right is more of the same cord that has been laid down in a spiral.

In the centre is a copper washer with a dark metallic bronze yarn couched down around the outside. At the centre of the copper washer is a smaller one that has been stitched using buttonhole stitch.

To either side are wrapped pieces, left one is wood, on the right its thick cord that I've held in place with painted pelmet vilene & stitches.

Along the bottom is a band of plaited cords like I used in the 2 top ones, then I've used short lengths of pale gold purl purl (a metal coiled wire used in traditional goldwork)

DLP: list 10 songs that make your feet move / PAC use gelli circle stickers

I struggled to get the list manageable! Too many to choose.....

So I used that thought to write some words on my PAC 

Then we move on to my inchie button

This was quite hard to photograph!

No colour me positive page done yet as its been a busy weekend so I'll have to see what I can produce tomorrow.
