Burnt offerings

I a have at last finished the two little books that I started at Sylvia Wood's workshop at Paddy's Stamping Place
Well, I say finished but I may well add some more beads etc. but for now I'm quite pleased with how they have turned out. Both were made with Kunin felt, lace and Stuart Gill paints and of course a heat tool. I loved doing this and have already started to make some more.

This is my favourite,I used distress inks to give a burnt look and then added lace and ribbon to some of the pages,I intend putting some sepia family photos in it.

This one will probably be used for little sketches, I have used a combination of hand made papers and wrapping papers for the inside.
I hope you like them, thanks for looking.Off to minister to a recovering Hubby!!

Hi Chris
Very impressed with your burnt offerings, great colours and love all the little bits you have added for texture etc...
Hope your Hubby gets better very soon:-)

These are so delightful.
Golly, I love little books and yours are surely treasures!
You are a girl after my own heart; I'm addicted to little books. Please can you tell what size they are?
Your poppy find sounds wonderful and yes, I would love some seeds, we could do seed swap!
