Cosy books

Just stopping by quickly to show you some more book jackets that have been finished by some of the ladies in my Tuesday class, using layers of sheer fabrics to create the images.

Carol made this beautiful example above and I love the way she has used velvet for the leaves. It adds a very luxurious element.

Jan chose mushrooms for her imagery... very autumnal.

Jean made two examples, one with leaves and one with flowers to which she has added beads.

Thelma also chose leaves for her design...

and Jenny also made two covers... one for her sketchbook and one for her diary

I love the way they all started with the same instructions and yet have all produced something totally beautiful and unique which reminds me why I love teaching.

Having a bit of a break from the teaching for the next few days... and a break from the blog too. But I'll be back in a week or so to tell you all about it. Got to finish those lace samples first...
