SALE at Creative Workshops - My Book "Peaceful and Pondering"!

Dear friends
it is so wonderful to know that there is still
so much interest in my book making style
and 
how I use all the wonderful elements
including vintage fabrics, laces, doilies, threads, buttons, papers,
sari silk ribbon, rusty findings etc. etc. 
to create
a journal for you to create in.

  

 




 


 I show you how to collect images, enhance them,
how to lay out your pages,
how to collage your images into pages
manipulating and layering fabrics and laces
as you go




 


and then how to place them into signatures for
binding into a book.

 




You have the option of using your unique style
to produce just the book that pleases you
with your own images and own materials.

This on-line workshop is available to you at
 50% off
24/7 for the whole of the month of July
at

Just click on Creative Workshops and it will take you
to the shop.
 I am sure many of you have been stashing your favourite
mixed media items for that special use 
and now
this may be an opportunity for you to use them.

Come join me and let your creative wings learn to fly
in a new direction!

"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!
