Finally some work to show

It has been a while as I have been soooooooo busy at work but I have made excellent progress on the journal pages. Here goes: (I have decided not to say which one is for who as it keeps some of the element of surprise.
1) All done and I have made a bead with local stone to go in another of the pockets.

2) I used my new soldering iron on this one to cut in the words. This backing material was dyed by me.

3) This one is inspired by Dartmoor and I used my soldering iron to cut out the leaves and my own dyed material and made felt.

4) I have finished the back of this one now, which i used chiffon to layer the threads with.

There are two others in mid progess. Photos to follow shortly. But for now here is a collection of close ups of some of the pages:
