one to the next,

                         that's how it is,

                                                  these days.

Tapestry Tales

Words in pictures, these days.

Some new creations are in my Etsy store, 

while I am working on some custom orders.

The Story Continues

These Storytellers may be filling up with writings, 
scribblings, drawings & things, 
around the world - 

How I would long to see them,
full and exploding with ink & paint -
or bits of collected this & that.

I stained the paper, only to further
enhance it with more staining...
the pages are rich, mottled wonders.

When I found it, 
this delightful decorative paper
filled my inspiration cup,
till it was overflowing,
and I couldn't wait to create with it.

Thoughtlands Returns

I return again, to this term 'Thoughtlands' - 
which has produced several books so far, 
each one different in its own aspect. 

This new one is large, and thick - 
very rugged leather which I adored working with. 
It feels lovely to hold.

Autumn is in full swing - 
pine cones are being harvested for the fire. 
Slippers are on. 
The morning air, crisp once again. 
The sunsets, earlier, richer -

I remember.

The Story Continues

I've decided to make this a repeatable book, 
yet not so that it is repeated perfectly.

Each one will have a different something or rather in it, 
 to keep it unique.

This time I have used a lengthy two-step staining process 
to accentuate the aged pages -
an effect which I love. 

There are extra pages,
making a total of 432 counting both sides.

This is a 3-inch thick book.

Prolific writers, unite.

The whole process from start to finish feels very meditative to me,
like my work does most of the time.
