J is for Juliet

This page came to me before Imogen (which required a Google search). As a lover of romance Romeo and Juliet are close to my heart and I also knew I had some lovely Juliet images from Alphastamps.

The background for this one is another of my gorgeous fabric finds in Cabbage Patch fabrics with a velvety pattern. This was layered with wadding (batting) and machine stitched echoing the pattern in the fabric. I added some vintage lace and on top a large Alphastamps fabric image (from the Juliet fabric sheet , portraying the balcony scene between Romeo and Juliet).

I added 4 white vintage flowers at the corners which are held down with a red rose and red bead each. More red beads were added to outline the image.

A smaller fabric image of Juliet (from Alphastamps Shakespeare's Heroines ABC sheet ) was also sewn on and beaded mounted on top of a fabric rose image (bondawebbed or wonderundered). I added a red heart in the same way with larger beads. Finally the quotation was sewn on which reads:
What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet
A lovely little rosebud which I picked up from somewhere was the last item to be couched onto the page together with the sparkly J which was attached with Diamond Glaze.

Oh Frieda, I just visit your blog and sigh as I meander through your artwork. Your work with fabric is phenomenal and truly an inspiration. There is a world beyond paper! Your pages are on their way to you as of this morning.
