On Saturday I made a little book using fabric for the covers. I attached, by machine sewing, a piece of cream linen to the front and back covers which were cut from card and then I made a fabric collage for both front and back using pieces of material, lace, buttons and felt, everything was attached using the sewing machine. I covered the inside covers with a piece of Gelli Plate art and the handmade pages were made from recycled cotton rag. This was a first attempt, I am quite pleased with it but hopefully the next one will be better as I hope to gather more appropriate embellishments and fabric. I am sorry but my photos are the  wrong way round they were correct until I uploaded them to my blog, I don't know why it does this, however, they should be vertical not horizontal.

 The middle of February and I thought I would never make it, I have never been so late with my Art Calendar inspired by the lovely and very talented Kate Crane. There are not many calendars on blogs this year as Kate has set up a page on Facebook and everyone is posting on their.My page was done using Tim's new Distress paints, gorgeous. My journal squares are cut from a Gelli Plate sheet again using Tim's Distress paints, the 2 figures are Stampotique and the word February and year are stamped on the page using Tim's new alphabet and numbers "Worn Text". The border of course is one of Dylusions and the little heart on the 14th came in a package from ART FROM THE HEART, they always do this, so sweet.
