Madame Lantelme.
I was looking at old vintage lady pictures for inspiration this came up on google images caught my eye.
Read her life story online. And decided to make a journal about her. Here is the scan.
Added a red lip with calligraphy red ink Winsor & Newton. Edges of picture have iridescent medium also W&N.
Fabric is small roses I think is Makower brand cotton quilt fabrics from some years ago but not sure.
Hand stitching around edge is Sulky thread cotton blendables wt 12 rose color. Beaded paperclip.

Yesterday was looking at Youtube for inspiration, saw scrap paper bundles video by Gayle Agostinelli and I think is a great way to sort little packets of papers. I will not be cutting totally square as I like uneven papers. Will add also some of my new amaryllis/hazel papers to these.

7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Amaryllis flower petals & hazel catkins tea dyed papers. on: February 18, 2019 08:34:14 AM
Amaryllis flower petals ( use almost dried up flowers) and hazel catkins tea left overnight. A cup full of hazel catkins add same of water leave to infuse. Brush camel hair add hazel catkins tea to paper add a layer of petals. Sprinkle some tea on petals. Add another copy paper page that has been brushed with the tea. Press slightly. Then roll up in a  tube of approx. 2" and leave on semi-warm heating radiator to dry slowly. When dry unroll carefully so as not to break paper.
I smooth paper out with hands and then cut to size.

Somehow all the Christmas crafts items, supplies, scraps are allover so yesterday I started with craft area gathering all things Christmas and into an empty panettone big tin with Xmas pattern, everything I found so far went in there.
It is now 2/3 full.
Some A4 size stencils, A4 papers , etc went  into a bookcase next to my 1" stack of 12x12 papers/cardstock.
Yesterday I sorted out 2 smaller boxes 25 x 25 cm  and sorting out along theme one is now all Spring/pastel colors supplies, papers,scraps, pale tea dyed papers etc. The other has another narrow box  put into it with diy ephemera journaling cards in it and next to it a small stack of half finished journals format TN.
Made a go at making some new journaling cards for spring with all sorts of leftovers and that is in a clear travel bag. Maybe this afternoon I do some time finding fall/autumn and start a box for that.
First week of january I want to continue the organizing and when I pause as I get tired soon than I do some ephemera or watch video crafts youtube and continue the organizing and sorting out of supplies. Yesterday also did some tea dying of music papers  using Rooibos tea which gives a brown-reddish tint and a hint of tea scent to plain white copy papers.
