A bit of stitching and beading can make the world of difference to a piece don't you think?
The one on the left is embossed hand-made silk paper...
...painted with acrylic paint.
The one on the right was done with Markal paintstiks through a stencil...
...with some of my delicious "Byzantine Mix" glass seed beads added to the centre.
The collection of possible pages is growing by the day!! :-)
(I'm glad I'm indoors......cattle have escaped again and are all milling around outside the house! Such large beasts are not to be toyed with...especially when there are young ones in the group. I do wish someone would sort the fences though....this road is dangerous.)
