Pulp Redux Peeks

Owl feathers (wing feathers from a NZ Morepork) second hand shop doily, laces and nature dyed fabrics.

I can't say too much about where the story is going at the moment as us pulp girls have decided to keep the last chapter of each book secret...for now...but I can reveal some peeks of what I have been up too in Debrina's book. I'm nearly finished with this book, which is the last in the round for me. This has been so much fun and I'm so glad to have had the chance to take part in this most awesome collab!

I've been holding on to this weathered buckle for longer than I can remember! It's rustic surface is the perfect compliment to the bandage retrieved from my erosion project bundle.

Mail ephemera..leather postcard, vintage WW1 mail envelope and vintage postcard.

Re-purposed fibre and lace...happy sigh!

Lisa, it looks gorgeus, so full of wonderful texture, and lovely things- can`t wait to see all you clever ladyes have done.

Reading this reminds me that I must get my own erosion bundle out of the BIG back yard and into the old papermaking blender.

Lisa this looks so amazing! Love that buckle, the ephemera and oh! that lace - so looking forward to the last part of the book. Fascinating work between the two of you.
Hugs, Suzy

layers said...

I love all the lace and buttons and layers of papers-- ALL texture to my eyes-- very spring-like too.
