Sewn organic boekie from Alicia Starr

A beautiful and delicate boekie from Alicia. I am not sure what kind of paper she has used, is it a kind of rice paper? It would fit the organic theme very well. Tea at the farm on a late spring evening, surrounded by chicken, or as Vizma would say, chooks :-)) I like chooks better. Alicia also included Japanese text, a piece of sewing pattern, and to wrap up everything nicely she sewed the pages of the book. Alicia, thank you so much for sending, I love it!

Done with care and interspersed with real life - nice one :-) X

covet-worthy ;-)))

I'm expecting some chook material to show up any day now. Don't know where from, yet.

What a sweet piece, Alicia! And it even looks like Marie's work! Thanks for adding the chook comment Marie! ;-)) I wonder if Angie will be making a chook word stamp?

Beautiful, Alicia, with very very covet-worthy crumpled wax paper. Delicious ... That stuff shows every turn that its life takes.

Is Mink Rancher planning to extend the ranch and build a chook palace?

Beautiful work, Alicia. The wax paper & sewing really emphasize how much materials matter with this kind of piece.

"Chooks" - Mink Rancher will like that.

I like that story a lot, Alicia :-)))

awh, thanks Marie. I think the paper is crumpled wax paper from a cookie. the Japanese tags were found by my  husband while on his noon day walk. First thought was someone planted a Japanese Maple tree. When he brought these home, very proud to have found "trashpo', you came to mind. Not because of the Japanese characters but for the delicateness of the paper and poem.
