There's lots going on today, so I'd better get started
straightaway. It's Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday today. so
I would like to give a warm welcome to all of the nice ladies
of the T Gang.
We are also starting a new challenge at TIOT
💝💖Hearts and flowers💖💝
As always you have 2 weeks to join in and projects of all
formats are welcome.
My piece was made with a collage onto corrugated
cardboard, using scraps of serviettes etc., and stitched with a heart.
I placed it inside a photographer's paper frame,
embossed with pearl structure paste and with added flowers:
The only problem was, I decided that I didn't like it. So I took the
corrugated piece out and used it as a cover on my second new journal:
This means that I have 2 journals with more or less matching covers:
And what about the paper frame?
I found another vintage photo from my dear Erika (taken in 1916), and
put her into it. I think the vintage style fits better:
I added some stitching and some natural flowers,
picked here from a tree in the front garden. I went over the stitching and round the photo with some gold chameleon way from Pentart:
And we're still not finished! I have my last piece
for Erika's lovely theme at AJJ. A HUGE thank you to Erika for all the lovely pages she made, and to all the lovely ladies who have supported
I am leaving AJJ in order to have more time for myself.
I will also be teaching two art classes each week at a
local art school, for the next 8 weeks,
and am looking forward to that very much.
And you can help yourselves to oat cookies,
extra delicious with molasses, cinnamon and ginger:
I went for a coffee last week at the Einhorn, (unicorn) and it was good:
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
