Yes it is tuesday again, and I`m happy to be back, after a wonderful visit 
from my daughter and grandkids, whom "stole" my time from
blogging last week, and also my internet has been down for 3 full days !

For newcomers ,here you have dear Wendy`s link to her beautiful blog !

My own neutrals this week is first, a part of my cover from the wonderful class 
of  SUZY`s , I`m doing right now, and which you can find here :

This is only a part of the cover, using an old cabinet card, and
an old buckle. The rose I made from muslin, and used lots of 
different laces, some older than others !

Here a better closeup.

And the other neutral creation today, is a christmas card,
in many layers ,using both paper and laces.

So fun to create the "frosted" leaves ,and using the real little
alder cones.

Thank you again, dear friend Wen, for making it possible to
be a part of your lovely party.

I hope you will visit Wen, and all the other participating!

Hugs and Love, Dorthe

I am breathless with seeing the beauty in Simply Neutrals and your talent to put together laces, bling and nature pieces. So gorgeous Dorthe Dear. Glad to have your internet working again. Whatever did we do before computers and internet?!! Creative Neutrals Bliss...

Lululiz said...

OMG, Dorthe, The little bit we can see of your cover is absolutely gorgeous and promises so much! The cabinet card is so lovely and that buckle, wow, so so pretty. I think this will be a really exquisite book. Darling Suzy's class is brilliant and such a joy to follow.

Lululiz said...

I got so carried away with the book cover, I forgot to comment on the card. It is a typical Dorthe card, incorporating naturals, and I absolutely love it! The 'frost' on the leaves and little pine cones is so sweet. It will make one lucky recipient very happy indeed.

Hei kjære Dorthe. Du tryller frem de vakreste ting. Kortene er helt nydelige og så mange fantastiske detaljer.
Klem fra meg

Dearest Dorthe
If the cover is any indication of how beautiful you book will be then I can only imagine how gorgeous your whole lace book will be.
The image has a beauty of simplicity against the sweet rhinestone embellishment. All of the laces look so beautiful behind your hand fashioned muslin rose.
I'm excited sweetie!
That is such a sweet Christmas Card you have created also with this vintage child dressed in white with layers of ephemera and your embellishment with frosted leaves and cones.
Simply gorgeous!
Love and hugs in vintage lace and whiteness!
Suzy xoxoxox

Hello Dorthe. Your pieces are so beautiful. I can't wait to see your finished book from taking Suzy's class. I also purchased her class, but likely won't get to work on it much until the winter. Your work is such an inspiration! I hope that you're having a great week. Hugs, Sue

June said...

How I love coming here to see your newest pieces of artwork Dorthe. I am so in love with the cover you have done for Suzy's class. That little girl photo is really special and then to add that beautiful buckle--WOW---
You get more done than I ever do my dear, and inspire me to get my laces and bobbles out and work on something.

I just had to stop by for some beauty and romance here on your blog... I adore your neutrals and the sweetness of that card... darling! xoxo

AppleApricot Wen said...

Sweetie, your book and card are so gorgeous!! I love love how you used the leaves on the card, adding beautiful glitter to them! And can't wait to see the whole book finished :) I just started with making mine from Suzy's class, but I only got as far as preparing the papers and images, lol. Sam has almost two weeks vacation from school now, so there is not much time for me to do some creating. Sending you hugs and wishing you a happy weekend, xx

OH Dear Dorthe ♥ what you have created on that stunning bookcover looks like something a princess would have. So rich and gorgeous!
The rhinestone buckle and precious little girl...every detail is fabulous.
It is clear you are enjoying Suzy's classes... can't wait to see more.
You are a natural talent and use neutrals so artistically.
Such a precious card you made with the perfectly lovely and magical touches of glitter.
It is always a treat to visit with you.
Happy you had more time with your precious family and that your internet is working again.

Hello dear Dorthe,

So many beautiful creations you have so lovingly made - love the soft neutral colours, the lace, roses and jewels.
Lovely that you spent time away with your family. Many thanks for the kind visit to say hello to me, all good here thanks but have just been busy on some projects around the house and garden.
Have a happy new week

Do you know Dorthe, you make the most incredibly beautiful intricate fabric creations. I always enjoy seeing them all. I still have a beautiful card you sent me a couple of years ago. I treasure it.

Wow! Absolutely stunning Dorthe!

Lace Age Girl said...

Hello Dorthe, Your cover from Suzy's class is exquisite. I can't wait to see it all. I love how everyone's artwork still expresses their own personality and sense of design, even though Suzy's techniques and ideas are the starting point. Your Christmas card is to die for.
