Precious baby

I finished this special project for the family of an adorable foster baby. All the elements I wanted to use came together very well i.e. white gesso, machine sewing, hand sewing and different textured flowers, some made and some not.   Unfortunately cannot show you the whole of the finished page due to privacy reasons, but I was really thrilled with the result and it is one of my 'feel good' projects and a favourite of mine this year. 

I have been looking for major mojo and I think with the finalisation of the massive clean out and tidy up of my craft space completed on Saturday has actually helped the process.  It was an absolute dream experience to look for something, find it, use it and put it away and end up with a reasonably tidy space at the end of the project . . . and did I mention the spaces on the tables that I could actually work on . . . heaven  :) and have somewhere for the papers to dry when sponged with the gesso!

Here are glimpses of the finished project

This is towards the middle of the page.  The ippity stamp is from the set Fall for you and is an absolute favourite of mine at the moment

bottom right hand side.  Because the lace has quite an open weave,
I machine sewed this on to the paper layers as well and loved the result



  1. Those sneaks are beautiful Rita - I'm sure they will love it. Yes, cleaning your space and organising everything definitely makes it easier to get the mojo going!

  2. just beautiful, love the effect of the sewing and how it all came together perfectly
