Last week while photographing 'the butterflies' I took advantage of having a fresh set of batteries in my camera and captured a few additional photos that seemed to share a common element - TEXTURE.
Lisa J.'s (Mudhound Studio) butterfly arrived several weeks ago with textures that made my mouth water. Not only was the butterfly sensational, but she had wrapped a beautiful thin hand painted silk yarn fiber around her package - something I had never seen before. I zoomed over to Lisa's Etsy shop and placed an order. It arrived last week, beautifully wrapped.
This is Lisa's photo (taken from her Etsy shop)

And this beautiful handmade paper she wrapped her package in - maybe she'll share her technique for achieving these beautiful impressions??? Thanks Patty!
In August I received this beautiful 4 x 8 skinny page from Viola at ( Saray-Viola ) posted below.
It was Viola who first inspired me to get out the sewing machine and begin to work with layers of fabric, images, buttons, lace..... Her work is always amazingly detailed and textural -
And finally, a skinny page I completed several months ago as a cover page -
Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for my junk find of the year photos tomorrow PLUS the latest incoming butterflies!
