.I received my dear friend Nellie's DVD ...." One of a kind fabric book " CLASS ,---and want to show you a few
spreads I made till now,- I choosed a nature theme, -you know I love
working with pieces from the nature, and I try to incorporate some
finds with copies, and photoes.

Here one of my beloved skeleton leaves with a stick,and some 
seaweed from the beach, and  a fabric transferred bird,on the other page.

I have tried to prepare the pages after Nellie`s suggestions, and love it.
She explains everything so wonderful, and shows all in beautiful pictures ,
Thankyou dear Nellie.
Below a piece of bark a leafe and a piece os an old shirt.

I don`t know how many pages there will be, in my book, time will show,
and also if those pages are all finished, or I will add some more fabric to them!!,
I think I might.

Those of you whom don`t know NELLIE FROM :
please go visit her and her wonderful blog, you will
just love her amazing creations.


To all you dear friends out there, I wish you  a 
and hope you can all relax a bit  ,and enjoy 
the Holidayes maybe with friends and loved ones.

Much love, and hugs from Dorthe

Happy Easter to you and yours Dorthe. Your book is beautiful, i love the way you have included discarded leaves and bark, I collect such things too. I prefer fragmented things rather than the original. I will pop over to see your friend's blog. I am sure you will add a little more to your lovely book. Jayne x

Happy Easter dear Dorthe!!!! So quickly it came, no? :D Beautiful piece, so much charm!


Astrid Maclean said...

This is absolutely stunning dear Dorthe, what a wonderful creation! I just love all the different textures and the beautiful natural additions! Absolutely stunning art my friend.
I will go and check out Nellie's blog, but before I do I want to wish you a wonderful Easter, hope you will be able to spend it with your lovely family!
Waving hello from far away Australia :o)

Ephemera said...

Ooooh Dorthe this is breathtaking, a truly gorgeous piece of artwork! Looking forward to seeing many more books in the future. Have a great Easter. XX

suziqu's thread works said...

Oh such beautiful pages my dear sweet friend! It is so wonderful that you are able to use objects that have either fallen down around you or you have found close by as Nature left it. What could be more treasured than placing them into a book you can look at as keepsake memories.
The colours are so natural, soft and muted.
I love what you have created so much so far! Let Nature show you the way forward with this!
May the love of nature surround you

Dear Dorthe
This is exquisite.
All those touches from nature, the bark and leaf add to the beautiful of the images you have used, that sweet bird.
So many beautiful textures and everything works together to perfection.
I look forward to further pages you share with us.
Wishes to you

Emilie said...

Kære Dorthe.

Jeg håber, du har haft en dejlig påske? Det har jeg, omend jeg desværre har været ramt af lidt influenza. Heldigvis varede det kun nogle dage, og jeg er frisk igen. Jeg glæder mig så meget over solskinnet, som har skinnet på os i Smilets By de seneste dage.

Hvor er det nogle flotte sider, du har fået lavet til din bog. Jeg ved godt, jeg har sagt det mange gange før, men jeg kan nu så godt lide, hvordan du kombinerer de rå naturmaterialer med de yndige ting som f.eks. blonder. Det giver en dejlig kontrast, som giver et henrivende liv og spil i dine værker.

Fortsat god uge til dig og dine kære.

Knus, Emilie
