2316 - Moo Mania & More - Butterflies

 Butterflies 
 over at 
MOO MANIA & MORE
for the next two weeks!
I hope to see you at the challenge blog (again).


I have to share a spread for my new started
Free Spirit Journal 
a project to try out a new to me binding method  that hopefully will end up as a stitched mixed media kind of nature-inspired Junk Journal.


It's also meant for
 ART FOR ART'S SAKE
hosted by Pearshaped Chris
at ART JOURNAL JOURNEY .

 I have used some microwave dried  plant material again - 
dried in the microwave oven ( like so )  as already mentioned earlier (HERE).

Much 
LOVE
from
Susi

  1. The sewing is incredible, but I also like how you attached the grasses, too. One thing I really like is it is so elegant and no words were needed to explain the beauty of this spread. What a gorgeous and well conceived spread. What makes it even better is you chose to add it to Chris's theme at Art Journal Journey.

  2. What a wonderful spread Susi - love the coxfoot seed head and the other flower you have attached - so much dimension, and I love the way your drying technique leaves so much colour in the plant material

  9. This is beautiful, Susi! I’m interested to see your binding as I haven’t gotten to that point with my “Wildlife, Native, American Indian” journal yet, and I don’t have a clue how to do it. I’ll be watching! Beautiful pages!

  22. A really stunning spread once again Susi, this is going to be one amazing journal!! I specially love the dried flower additions, almost makes me wish I had a microwave, - but as I don't really believe in microwave cooking I must be one of the few people in the developed world who doesn't....
