Pansy book

I love the work of Frances Pickering and recently purchased her gorgeous book Page after Page









She is such a talented artist, and her books are divine, just click on the links above. There is lots of hand stitching, and her book has lots of wonderful ideas for creating your own.
I also admire the work of Lesley Riley and my friend owns her book on using lutradur
Inspired by these wonderful publications, I created my pansy book.Cover made of pelmet vilene, painted and then stitched
My pages are made of purple lutradur - folded from 1 sheet and then embellished in various ways. Pressed pansy on tag using my microwave flower press. A couple of other spreads :
Made the pansies and butterfly from my own silk paper
Lots of new techniques tried, and lots of learning. Talk to you later

You are amazingly talented, its cool to see some of your creations online as you so obviously enjoy creating them and I don't always remember or know to view them in real life. Keep it up.

Welcome to Blogosphere! I just love your book - those dreamy colors... And I love pansies, too. And doesn't this remind me that my blog has been on ice for nearly two months.
