In 1915 in Walberswick

in Suffolk CHARLES RENNIE MACKINTOSH painted FRILLARIA MELEAGRIS.
I can't paint.........well certainly not like CRM ........so I took a photo of my Fritillaria and used it on a journal page! This is in my big A4 journal which is nearly full.....I need to get another one!


 When I decided to make this page I remembered I had a Mackintosh style stamp alphabet somewhere.....so I rumaged around and found it in a drawer! It is from MA VINCI'S RELIQUARY.....a heavenly place if you like alphabet stamps :)

 I continue my quest to write more on my pages and I wrote around the flower.

 Don't look too closely......I spelled FRITILLARIA wrong!!! Oh well!


Since I got back less than a week ago this little beauty has started to open its buds.....it is a DOG TOOTH VIOLET.

I love your pages, I am a big CRM fan so this is extra special.

Violet is looking rather pretty too.

Is there no end to your collection, cannot believe you found an alphabet that matches perfectly. Great page Sue, as always, Tracy x

I am still in awes of those flowers. I like how you used it with the writing.
