Journal Page Week 26

I used Gelatos through a stencil to add color to the background of this page.  For me this page is all about the quote.  I find it to be so true.  I count my blessings everyday and my life keeps getting better!  Let's make life a celebration!

Work in Progress Wednesday

My bead journal for June.  I love the beaded sky.  I think that turned out quite well.  The needle felted parts could still use some work.

Take a Stitch Tuesday

The Knotted Feather Stitch is interesting.  It seems I did it last time around about 3 years ago.  I then promptly forgot about it.  It seems to me that I have done that quite frequently.  I should have a sampler to refresh my memory when I am stitching.  Thanks to Sharon B for the instructions.  I have stitched the Knotted Feather Stitch with DMC Jewel Effects on handmade paper.

I heart Macro

Another kaleidoscope.  I can never get sick of kaleidoscopes!  They are so interesting.

More Dyeing

When I was dyeing threads last week I also dyed some ribbons.  Rayon seam binding is on the left and silk ribbon on the right.  They both really grab hold of the dye nicely.  I love just looking at them!  I am excited to think of a project to use them.  The colors are gorgeous!

Journal Page Week #25

The quote this week is 'You are enough'.  I wrote I am enough over and over on this journal page.  Mostly, I am pretty confident but there are times when I just don't feel good enough or talented enough or, or, or.  The older I get the more accepting I am of myself and the more I believe that I am enough.

Work in Progress Wednesday

I had so much fun dyeing these threads!  I can't wait to do some stitching with them.  My hands are still a bit stained from dyeing these threads last week but it is worth it.  I am very happy with the vibrant colors.
