"Nature's Wings" Completed!

It's always very satisfying to complete another
project and especially so when 
someone puts up their hand to purchase it!


 



 




A rusted washer gets added to the closure
tied with sari and velvet ribbons!

 




 

Pages filled with scraps of fabric and paper 
stamped with the inclusion of
bird adages!


 


torn paper, embroidered net
 

 


hand stitched layered scrim, lace and paper
 

 


insects and buterflies around flora and fauna
 

 


 all culminating
in this stack of pages!

 

Thank you dear readers for visiting and commenting
so kindly as you do - I hope these pages
inspire you too!
Happy weekend to everyone wherever you are!

"Nature's Wings"

I'm still enjoying the process
of creating small books
using many different fabrics, textures, images
and precious words to accompany my latest
creation called "Nature's Wings"! 

 


 This is the proposed cover with additions still to be 
added
like
some inspirational words which
 our winged friends
represent to us! 


I have used several layers of soft felts, laces
and papers gessoed, painted and glued


with defining hand stitches. 

This process appeals to me so much
as it allows the words to form in my mind as I stitch!

 


The stacked pages ready to be bound together to 
represent another interpretation of
what these little winged beings flying around us
mean to each one of us!

Anyone wishing to learn my book making
techniques may enrol into my on-line workshop at:

http://creativeworkshops.typepad.com/blog/2015/07/peaceful-pondering-fabric-lace-book-suzy-quaife.html 

 


 


This is a very extensive and detailed class to follow
with no end date - so you can enjoy it all
at your own leisure! 

Enjoy my friends!

Easter Blessings

This Easter assemblage
shows I am still a country girl at heart


 with birds nests, eggs, jugs and stoneware bottles
even though living as a "townie" now
these values still remain!





 

and there is always a favourite creation or two
 

 


 
  
 



 

Wishing you all a very happy, safe and enjoyable
time over Easter!

Mini Journals


Welcome my friends!
Many of you know that I love to create books
and journals 

 much like these above 
but
more recently I have been creating what I like to call
"Mini Journals" often with a particular theme! 
This particular one is centred around
some beautiful French images
of Madonna and French Saints

 

 As I often do I have delved into my stash to find
just the right type of felt, vintage laces - antique also


combined with some old silks
and hand stitching.



 The cover displays some printed text overlayed
with a cabachon holding an image
of a French saint







 

Adopting meaningful verses
to uplift our senses!

















 This one has gone to live with another fabric textile artist
but I do have one for sale entitled
"A Mother's Love"

 


which I will shortly list in my Etsy shop!
or contact me at suziqu@tpg.com.au
if interested.
♥♥♥
Having the best intentions of trying to be around more
and thank you all for visiting!
