Recently I have received some lovely "art mail" which I thought I would share with you. From the gorgeous Sharon Tomlinson an absolutely beautiful envelope arrived in the mail (picture below this picture...). Inside the envelope, which is a work of art in itself, were these beautiful serviettes for my art - thank you so much Sharon, I share your passion for serviettes in art. Also these wonderful moo cards and images of Sharons beautiful ladies. Very special.... This is the wonderful envelope..... a treasure itself, and how exciting to see this in your mail box! AND..... that is the back (wondering where my photo of the front is??? will find it soon and share).
Below a beautiful package of handmade lace and vintage embroideries from my very dear patchwork friend Mary. These will be cut up at some stage and used in a patchwork piece. I adore the work of Karen Ruane who uses vintage embroideries in her wonderful wrapping cloths and binders. Pop over to her blog and take a look, her work is stunning.
Talk about spoilt.... I received these beautiful fabrics from Julia of Verdigris Rose blogspot. Lovely florals and the embroidered voile is my favourite I think... or is it the lovely blue background floral? The are all so beautiful and I cant wait to play with them. Thank you Julia!
Finally.... I have been playing around with my neocolor crayons. I just love how creamy and smooth they are. This page in my journal is titled "fronds" as it was inspired by the bracken fronds unfurling. Next I might try the bracken open. I am enjoying playing with ink and watercolor crayon.
Thanks for popping by and visiting my blog! Next weekend my sister and I are doing a handmade journal class with Ro Bruhn..... looking forward to that! My last class with Ro was such fun and inspirational. Will share some of my journal pages from the class with you very soon.
Have a cerulean blue week.
