My next two projects.

It has been a busy evening on the phone and computer making arrangements with my cousin in S. Africa for his visit at the end of October.
I shall be meeting his daughter, so tonight I started to make her a journal with some of the old Vollbrecht family photo's.  I shall be reprinting this photo tomorrow as I need to adjust the colour to make it more of a sepia tone.  The embellishment idea I got from Diane, thanks Di, it fits my theme well.
 For my cousin I have started a Hundertwasser style wall hanging, so will be busy over the next couple of weeks getting these finished.















I made this to wish someone good luck in their new job and posted it 2 weeks ago.  I think it must have got lost, as I haven't heard that it has arrived.
To make her dress,  I used a dressmaking pattern onto a card backing, which I coloured with distress inks and glimmer sprays,  then some additional stamping.


My brother flies out to India tomorrow, he is going to be filming the Commonwealth Games, I hope his accommodation isn't too bad!

I cannot take credit for the flower design as I got the idea from Jillayne on A Fine Seam blog.
