Someone asked me if I'd like to do a page in a journal; she'd just completed her pages but the journal belongs to another person. How scary is that, letting other people loose in your journal :-0 hehe. As the owner is unlikely to view it here I'm showing my pages. I started with colour without any idea of where I was heading. I'd sorted one page and was trying to make a kind of papier mache bird for the other; I used a mix of kitchen roll and book pages and didn't want it too dimensional but when I was painting it I decided I could've achieved the same thing with some thick card and though it would've still been ok to use I started looking for something else for a focal point. I came across the house I made some weeks ago for the Sunday Stampers'challenge and thought the colours fitted really well with my pages, I just added a little Wild Plum ink to the other page to tie it in. The pages are a bit greener than they look here.
I've been doing more sewing and am just showing a sneaky peek of a mini art quilt I've made for someone; I'm still a novice at free machine embroidery! The quilt only measures 101/2"x73/4" and the piece I'm showing is 4"x5". I've used a mix of sheer fabrics for the background, the stems and leaves are felt.
