ECO-DYED PAPERS AND A COLLAGE


I wanted to show you some of my latest Eco-dyed papers 
so here goes ....


I used different leaves and a few flowers, 
below rose leaves , which always gives a lovely print, for me .



I don`t remember all , but  I used old book pages ,khadi paper, 
and old  envelopes .


This is beautiful in real life !!


Here I used Alun leaves  ( Heuchera) which tends to
give this beautiful tone . 


This is a bough from an Elderberry, still with green berries.


Another rose leaf ,- and below I used tiny Daisies,
giving this print ,which I love . 



And below on e of the collages made using a print as 
background .
 The link should hopefully take you to her online classes ,and this 
Botanical Collage  Miniclass.


It is a wonderful experience to dye with nature items, and to follow 
Kate in showing and doing how to !!

Have a lovely weekend- 
Hugs and love

A NEW LITTLE FOLDED BOOK

I was inspired online to create this folded tiny book ,- not too easy
to photograph , and I don`t know if it makes any sense for you,

                                           

But here you can see how the pages are getting smaller
each time it is opening up a new page .


some close up, 


the two smallest pages 


I`m sorry the colors are not optimal here -


here close up of the cluster 


I stay in my romantic mood as you see, and have used papers
from Papergarden-fi again (most of  the faces ).


I created little clusters and tags and embossed the white paper napkins 
which gives beautiful results .


I hope it gives an idea even it is a bad picture , but by clicking the photos,
 you can see bigger pictures. 

I hope you are all doing good and wish you a lovely new week .

Take care
Hugs and love

The almost last pages in my journal -


HAPPY EASTER to you all , I hope you spend cosy , safe and lovely days ,
even we spend them at home and alone , most of us. 

Here are the next five spreads in my junk-journal ,


The materials are mostly the same , as described in the first post
of this ,-  here I also used a piece of an old floor cloth , lovely tattered ,
you see it near the bird-  (please click the photoes for more clearly see the details ) 


Maybe you can see the little handrolled flower, which I was inspired
to flatten , after watching one of  : Sigitacoffeestains   you-tube ,-to make it more suitable for a journal, - Thank you Sigita . In right page you see a tiny tag peaking out from a pocket .


Here a ruffle on the left on top of old paper, and to the right a little pocket
with another tag inside .


Handmade flower and yo-yo ,  a bit of slow-stitching 
laces and machine stitching .


And for now the last one , papers from  The Paper Garden again
(see link in my earlier post )  paper napkins and more machine stitching .
I`m not satisfied with the photos, but hope you can see better when clicking them .

I also hope you are all safe and keep going, in this our new world. It gives heavy 
thoughts , and even tears on some days, and therefore this community is so important
for so many of us, sharing our creations, and thoughts , thank you for being there !!

Hugs and love Dorthe

PAGES FROM A NATURE JUNK BOOK-

It seems rather a long time since I was here,, but wanted to
show you what I have been trying to distract myself with through the 
last many weeks, of covid-19 worry .


The book is made with old coffee dyed papers, and envelopes , and here
are the first 5 spreads . I used old pieces of papers, and fabrics, from my 
paper and fabric junk-boks - handmade flowers and tags. 
If you click the photo, you will have a bigger image . 


And papers from https://papergarden.fi/gb/ a lovely Finnish shop .like
the Lily -of -the -Valley above and others. The birds are all from
an old nature journal.


The stamps are from FB : June Mac ------and the tree stamp below ,and some words



There are little clusters like the one below flower rosettes
and old book pages, already yellowed by time . 


I so hope you are all safe and well ,-- here we try the best and
only goes out for a walk every day, and not meeting many persons .

Take care dear friends, all over the world, we are in this all together
and we will stay positive , hopefully, with a daily creative time . 

Hugs and love
Dorthe

little rags from my stash


handmade tags, and a real embroidered leaf , added to an envelope 


Here another tea-bag lady , and a rolled rose,


This was a card I was not satisfied with, so tore it to pieces,
and used them separately .


Piece of tea bag paper , and everything sprayed with infusions .
