Dear Diary 2014, Week 12

Week 12, March 17th to March 23rd 2014

Dress Fabric, white silk brocaded in coloured silks and silver gilt thread, Spitalfields, London, about 1750-5
The image from this weeks diary page invokes a kind of serenity in me, with the peacful tones of the colours.
I have interperated this with a piece of hand made paper that has bits of petal and twigs through it.
It has a soft, natural feel and look to it. Peaceful, restful and light.

Hand made paper, on gold card and french knots

  1. That paper is wonderful - who knew that twigs could be in paper?! The French knots set it off beautifully too.

  2. Thank you Mary Ann. The twigs and petals are loosely embedded. They could slip out if handled too much. But very pretty.
