2nd Cut-Edge Page

here is another cut-edge page in my handmade journal.  I love Valerie's class on edging. adds so much to a journal along with flip-out pages.
and here are my two handmade journals - all colored and ready to go. I love this partial  quote "to imagine is everything." by Anatole France

Hi Ya

isn't this carved man the cutest piece of wood. he is at Woody's eatery on Chincoteague island.  loved this place - great pulled pork, though that is not my thing i shared a bite with hubby. surf boards + stand to eat + old phone booth + so 60's/70s.  great fun

Glitter Needle Felting

i have this bowl of potpourri sitting on my table. i used it to interpret my may tag on FAT. the idea to take a photograph of something and interpret it however you wanted.
i
wish i had kept all the pieces together and added more of them. ok try again. this tag is headed to CA.  i used Angelina and crystalline needle felting and glitter.

Saturday, June 01, 2013

here is a tag using angelina and crystalina needle felting, a piece of word selvage, few beads and handstitched edging.  i was inspired from a beautiful rose bush in downtown Chincoteague.
i could not stop taking snapshots of all the beautiful rose bushes. now hubby wants a few in our front yard.
are these not wonderful to gaze upon! does this mean more planting for me? lol i included a closeup of some of the sparkle from the crystalina in the flower tag.
