I've been playing in my journal again over the last few days, starting with this
and, a few layers later, ending up with this
The number five has no particular relevance, except that a pile of numbers was lying on my desk and the shape of the five caught my eye! I laid it down on a piece of scrap paper and cut it out, then stitched it to my journal on the sewing machine.
There's more stitching on the circles, and I dug out my soft pastels recently, for use on another project, and decided to try them as an accent in my journal. I just love inky, splodgy, stitchy pages like this so last night I did another.
I stitched the flower design on a piece of previously painted paper, then glued it onto the page in my journal that started life like this
After a bit of stamping, cutting and sticking I decided it needed another element and set about carving a stamp from an eraser (15p in the WHSmith sale last year!)
A bit of a design change meant it didn't quite fit (the raindrop's missing it's point at the top), but I can live with that!
