Bunny Pages

Here ya go. These are the pages from inside the bunny book. I made little art quilts and embellished them. Then I affixed each to a cloth page that has batting sandwiched between it. The images were manipulated on my computer for color and size and then transferred onto silk. The corresponding pages are my own design. Do you see the bunnies? David can finally see them. Either that or he's just fibbing to make me feel good.
This page is two little girls holding a bunny. I used vintage lace, vintage buttons and pearl beads.

This page is a lady holding a bunny that is all wrapped up like a baby. I love the little elves and can't help but think they brought her the bunny knowing she would be the perfect mother. If you look at the page, you'll see the word promise, a key and a heart. The mother is telling the bunny, "I promise you the key to my heart." Vintage lace surrounds this page.

This page has vintage linen from a table cloth, vintage lace and buttons.

This page is used an old damask table cloth that belonged to my mom when I was a little girl. It's too messy to be used as a table cloth, but it's perfect to be reused into art. I just love these pages.


This final page used linen again and a vintage button. I love making these bunny designs. I have tons of them and will be featuring them in more of my upcoming work.

Have a good week. Stop back by and see me on What's Up Wednesday.

This week IGF people who wanted to become "exotic pet" vet's. Razzy has been sick and I'm grateful to have such good care for him. Keep him in your prayers.

The book is totally amazing! Wow!
Poor Razzy :-( One of my outdoor kitties disappeared for a night, and I was worried sick, but she is back in her condo now...think she bruised her front leg...she had a bit of a limp...I always pray to St. Francis...seems to work! She came home!
