My CA workshops with Vilte Kazlauskaite and Irit Dulman was so great that I learnt a lot the skills, what's more is friendship that made my wonderful time in the sunny California. What's best to do my practice with the new skills?
In the mid winter the fallen leaves were still rich in color, brown, red, yellow....... Can't resist to pick up some......
The old oak trees behind Melinda's house are so huge
A lovely day with Monita to pick some windfalls in Central Park....
All the good days made me to make a keepsake with the leaves. I steamed the leaves in between iron mordanted fabrics and papers to make the clear outlines.
Here they come....
Each page with the leaves picked there. Oak, euc, liquidamber.. and other unknown sorts
They're pretty in shape and color. I love all.
I binded it with plain paper in between for writing.
A little journal for my keepsake of the nice days
I made 3 little journals in a row
These are nuno felt covers with euc leaves prints steamed
One with a ceramic button closure
One tied with a wool felt knot
Both are nuno felt covers with textural look and pages also with prints and plain papers
These two little journals are special keepsakes for special friends who made my fabulous trips.
Tied with a little ceramic button with "no secret"
Brought my heart back from Levis' Plaza, San Franscisco .....
