Simply Neutrals Tuesday Party No. 2

Let me say before anything else that
I would like to give "a huge Thank you"
for the most wonderful support
I have received in people
enrolling in my on-line class at Creative Workshops with Gail!
You are the best!!! 

The class is now open and anyone can join in immediately - no waiting period now at:
I will walk you through all the stages of creating your own
fabric lace book / journal.

Today I am joining in on Wen's party over at
for sharing our favourites 
Simply Neutrals Tuesday.

This fabric collage I created as part of a swap with
another wonderful blogging friend, Lisa McIlvain, of www.tarnishedandtattered.blogspot.com
some time ago!
Lisa is a very talented mixed media artist that many of you may know.



So come and join me over at Wen's with some of your favourite 
neutrals or creams or whites or greys or browns
or whatever takes your fancy.

Many thanks and love,
Suzy xox 


  1. Dear Suzy, this is simply stunning! Beautiful! I love that you added the whatsitcalled... that silver thingie :) hanging on the chain as an embellishment, all beautifully pimped up with the lace and pearl and beads and so on. It's gorgeously soft and romantic with a bit of drama. Thank you sweetie for joining the party again and for the shout out! Sending you big hugs, xxx (Back to watch the remaining videos of your workshop now...)

  2. This is a fabulous art piece that sweet Lisa will love, dear Suzy. The tin is wonderful addition to your beautiful layers of fabrics and laces. It's great that you both are doing a swap.
    I'm sure that all the ladies who had signed up for your class are happy that the day to start has arrived and that they all will enjoy it.
    Your spring garden looks so lovely and the magnolia tree is just amazing.
    Have a wonderful week, dearest friend!
    Sending hugs and love,

  12. Breathtaking - whites and. creams are my first love!
    Layers of soft fabrics and lace with the chain holding the vintage tin - am I in Heaven?.......sigh!

    I'm loving your class Suzy, you are a natural teacher and I've learnt so much already!
    I can see another class in the future with Your "Lost Love" piece today!

    Much love

  13. Suzy your collage is stunning and what a wonderful work of HeART. Neutrals are amazing in how beautiful they can be just left to their own. Creative Neutral Bliss...

  15. Hello

  16. Lisa must have been over the moon to receive your gorgeous piece:)
    Watched the first video last night - so nice to see you in action, dear Suzy. Have a lovely day.
    Hugs and love,

  17. Suzy, I just want to say how much I have enjoyed your class videos. I have already watched them all once and loved seeing you work your magic. I know I am going to be watching them many more times and thank you for giving us the opportunity to learn from you.
    Your fabric collage is beautiful.

  18. Good morning dear Suzi! (or Good Evening there!) Just want you to know I 'binged watched' your entire video class yesterday. Oh my... I've made probably a dozen books, and I still learned SO MUCH from your videos. Plus, if felt like I was right there in your home, making all the pictures you've posted over the years, come to life.

    I learned an amazing amount of techniques that I've never used before. The biggest one is the assembly of your collage. I've always started with the borders...and that's why my books have always looked so 'boxy' and have used up way too much of my lace trim stash. The second: now I don't know why I've always stuck with 'my way'... it's using good quality canvas paper to print the photos. I've always used fabric, and often have not been happy with one: the faded out look, and two: the way the lumpiness under the photo shows through on the photo.

    I'm really excited to start incorporating some of your techniques into my work! FABMO, the place where I pick up so many up-cycled designer fabrics samples, is have a boutique the end of October. It will be my first time to set up a booth and sell my fiber arts. So... THANK YOU a million times dear one!

    Sending you lots of love and hugs from the California Redwoods,

  19. Your creations are like a romance novel... lovely to behold.

  20. Hi there Suzy~ I already miss the SN Tuesdays!
    I thought I would stop by and 'reach back' into your blog a bit. This collage is stunning. You have such a fine eye for 'putting things together' to create such beautiful end results. I like how you've incorporated the metals here; and the black rose seems to set everything off so beautifully~ Have a nice week/week-end! ~Karen O


Thank you so very much for stopping here to say hello and to see what I have been creating. I really treasure each and everyone of you for your comments. It is so appreciated....Suzy
