a little bit o' art

Just a quick post: here's a page in a colours deco (green and gold) that I did earlier this week.

The background is handmade (not by me), hand-dyed (by yours truly) kozo, stitched with metallic thread. The stars were cut out from a scrap of gold card, and sewn on with some more metallic thread. I'm really, really pleased with how this page turned out.

I managed to (finally!) get some paper dying done today, so I'll post a tutorial at some point this week.

Today was a beautiful, sunny day, so Zh. and I decided to go for a walk in the neighborhood. We brought the camera along, and pretended to be photographers, shooting everything in sight. Here's my favourite photo:

I've been out a few nights this week, so I haven't had much time to make stuff. I do have one completed piece, for a colour-themed round robin. (Guess what colours the theme was!)

I used many different papers and sewed them together using my sewing machine. It was incredibly time-consuming, but I'm happy with the result.

I didn't manage to get any paper-dying done last weekend, but I'm definitely doing some tomorrow, so I'll post results and instructions in the next few days. I promise!
