30 done - Z E R O left!

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My final skinny pages are finished!  16 months and 30 pages - and I'm looking forward to moving on to new projects.  I photographed this skinny as a work in progress a few weeks back, so below is a montage of the final pages along with a few macros.  Owing to the lack of light, they appear much darker - which based on the theme of dreams and my translation of a dream that leant itself to the moon and the stars, the darkness adds to the mood. 

I really used a variety of different materials on these pages.  Hand embroidering french knots and a baseball stitch, seed beading, adding vintage lace, regular lace, buttons, sara silk ribbon, tatting, ric-rac, plus several different colored threads and various machine stitches. 

Over the past year and a half I  have received so many amazing pages, each member of this group showcasing their talents and flair for composition time and time again.  Before too long, I hope to be able to post some photographs of the incredible 'skinny book' that resulted from our collaborative efforts. 

Stay tuned for Update 20 of the Butterfly Effect which is my focus for tomorrow!  Happy Sunday.

Your examples of the techniques you used reminds me of a "prairie sampler" only an updated, spiffy version. Your sewing skills are amazing. I love the results you achieve from them as well.
