Medieval book

One of my books had these gorgeous images from the Middle Ages, and it inspired me to make a book, as a class journal for the upcoming DJ Pettitt workshop in Jacksonville, OR, in January.

I admire DJ’s work no end and I am thrilled to be taking a workshop with her. I had to have a journal that would do her justice.

Yes, I do like John Waterhouse. To a point. His images seemed fitting for the theme.

And yes, I did buy a wedding gown at my favorite thriftstore, to salvage the lace.

  8. I love medieval, illuminated, gothic and all of that so this really strikes a chord with me. I especially like the bits of fabric showing on the edges and the images you used. Were they from an online site?

  12. This is just lovely. The medieval era really goes well with this type of treatment. Nice work.
    I really need to give it a go, and just get all carried away with lace and beads and whatever.
