from this....to this....


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!
