More Lace

Our Vintage Lace journal group is small; there are only 5 of us, and we've been moving the books along very quickly.  Last week I received Tracy's gorgeous book from Elena, and have managed to not only work on my pages, but finish them.  Tracy's theme is the art of John Willian Waterhouse, and once I found the image I wanted to use, everything else seemed to fall into place.

Here is my double page spread; Tracy will bind it into her book down the middle, between the two rows of buttons.

And closer views of the individual pages.

I included some beading (pink and bronze seed beads) around the image (which was printed on cotton fabric).
And had the perfect flower in my stash of Prima embellishments.
Some of my antique buttons found a new home too.
The back has to be finished, though not decorated.
I only have one more book to work in, which I should receive some time in March.  If things move along as they have been, my own lace journal should return home to me in April.  Yea!

Just beautiful, Eileen!!! Send it on whenever you want and I will start the thinking process for what to do with Tracy's next! I have Sox's somewhat planned out, but not together, but I'm getting there.

I love the way this turned out. The interplay of horizontal lace stripes and circular medallions on each side is so interesting!

Eileen, you did a beautiful job on that one too. Don't you just love the synchronicity when the perfect flower or embellishment shows up when you need it. I love the back page too, it's great.
