Look what came in the mail yesterday!! This felted covered book created by Marian of Beautifulplace.etsy.com... is filled with blank pages for writing and painting and sketching my deepest dreams. ..
Marian says of this piece..."From the land of sparkling forest moss and winding woodland paths ... an eternal tree of life...
needle felted from hand dyed wool and wool curly locks. ~ 60 pages of heavyweight watercolour paper suitable for writing, drawing, painting and inks as well as drawing paper in ivory and a nut brown shade. Cover and end pages of natural, unbleached, botanical handmade paper are included. Pages are torn to size and stitched with a sturdy golden thread. Pages have been slightly edged with flame.
A little leaf bookmark is felted in place. closes with a handmade ceramic button with red headed woodpecker and a braided tie of handspun wool with sparkling leaf and berry embellishment."
This treasure measures 6" x 9" / 15cm x 23cm
It is a magical and earthy book for recording the eternal now...and dreams of the future!
