Simply Neutrals #39 - a little late !!

For this weeks Simlpy Neutrals  I want to show you a tine
book I created , taking a wonderful class from Nellie  , (the link takes you straight to her Etsy .

It is created with Watercolour paper, and old rusted bits and pieces. 

The pages were also treated fairly hard with water, and inks.

And then this card  created with remnants from gifts from my dear Lynne,
The red paper, and the sewings, are both from her sending goodied to me .

And lastly these beautiful flowers , now digged into the garden earth, to
hopefully arrive again, next winter ..

With this I also wish you a beautiful and Happy Easter, dear friends.

This booklet is enchanting ! So beautiful!I have to take a class with Nellie once - I so love her style as well. Those flowers are wonderful - I got nice (Helleborus niger) as well in November and I decided to now put them into the garden . I didn't dare to do it in winter - even though they told me that it would be o.k.
I wish you a Happy Easter dear Dorthe!
We even had sun today and nearly 15 degrees Celsius I so hope it will stay for at least some days now.
Hugs, Susi

Gorgeous project Dorthe . Nellie is a great teacher. I had a chance to take a class from her at Art is You and she is so friendly and helpful. I have one of her hand made journals. I just like to look at it. xox

What a wonderful class to create such a sweet little book Dorthe. I love how you have bound it with lace and aged rusted elements. Your sewn page is inspiring with that peeping red paper.
I hope your flower will enjoy it's rest and make another show this winter.
Wishing you wonder this weekend and a very Happy Easter my Friend..

Hello Dorthe,
I LOVE your book! How wonderful to do a class with Nellie! We are so lucky to have so many awesome options to express ourselves and our love of beauty. Those flowers are so divine, the perfect colour of Easter I think. The 'mistreatment' of the paper looks so grungy and old - what fun to do that! And it's perfect for Simply Neutrals.
Hope your Easter was peaceful.

Love and hugs from Jesse XX
