Ledgerwork IX


The last post about this upcycling ledger. In good tradition I made some detail pictures again. What I love about these pictures is the change from the white page with the pinpricks to a page filled with all its content. 


I'm aware that you don't get to see all the pictures of all the different stages and that's the reason for the video made at the end of each project. 


Not that you see all the different stages but at least you get to see all the finished pages in total.


Hope you enjoy this short video. 

And for me it is back to work! :-)

Ledgerwork VIII


One page in my ledger I used to make a small collection on how I can attach a piece of paper to the page without glue. Ofcourse all the pieces of paper can be embellished but that wasn't the point for this page.


Made another minimalistic page, this time with three layers. Although you can't see it these papers are also attached to the page in a special way.

Time to start stitching again!

Ledgerwork VII


Two opposite pages to show you. Besides playing with the colours, I decided to play with the shapes as well.  


A colourstudy is a place where colours meet and with this thought I made the next two pages. Minimalistic but still very effective. In the first photograph you see the two colours of thread which are similiar to the paper being couched down with a third colour.


In the last picture the two papers are divided by a stream of pinpricks. French knots would also be a lovely idea but since I haven't used a knot-stitch in this ledger it didn't feel appropriate. 



That's all for today. Have a wonderful week.

Ledgerwork VI


Two more pages to show to you today. The picture above is a small detailpicture which I really like despite the fact that I'm not happy with the end result of that page. Last night I got an idea to make this page a bit more interesting which I will try later on.


Made a collage for the next page. This page has four layers and since I never made a page with four layers I'm over the moon with the result. It takes a lot of planning and stitching, who cares, I'm in love with this page! :-)

And although I am not a big fan of yellow, I do like this one a lot!

Enjoy yourself with your own projects.

Ledgerwork V


Some detailpictures today. In the photo above you see a flower in thread. Made similar flowers before in the Outlander-project but added another twist to it.  These two colours work really well for me.



Again my threads are crossing, just love that and I did use another shape which makes it ok for me .. :-)


Since I do love the shape of this one I added another picture from a different angle for you. 

Have  a lovely week and enjoy the sun!

Ledgerwork IV


Today there are two more pages in which weaving was on my mind. In the picture above you can see my idea of minimalistic weaving. The circle and the square are woven together in an equal way, love this one. In the two borders the threads are also crossing, the brown together with the yellow make the page more vibrant. Blomstergarn is ideal for this type of work.


The opposite page is way more bulky. I made a strip of papers woven together. This was a lot of fun and it brought me back to my early schooldays ... :-). Beside the tied in paperweave I pinpricked a pattern that resembles a weave, really love it and some small circles to make sure there is also some thread involved!

I guess it is time to start working again. Have a lovely week and I'll see you soon again.

Ledgerwork III




Weaving is still very much on my mind and so another page with ideas is made. The weaving/embroidery combination turns out to be a very fruitful one. Next time there will be more!

Enjoy your thursday.
