Catologue Killers




Well after months of decaying in the garden and then drying indoors. Maggie Gray, of http://magstitch.blogspot.com/
gave us the go ahead and inspiration to get started on some of the pages.
They have both been painted with gesso then had the Quink ink and walnut ink treatment. left to dry overnight. i have only added a couple of faces and a paper cast to the top one.
The bottom one has had scrim, wood , stone, shell and a couple other embellishments added.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
and a big thankyou to all who left such encouraging comments on previous posts.

Your catalogues are wonderful. You have used such lovely colours and the textures are great too. I love the altered cutlery on your earlier post - I bet you all had fun doing them.
