I began visual journaling in earnest a little over two years ago. I love the process and I love to teach journal classes but more than either of those...I love making delicious covers for my journals. I started this one last fall at a Cloth Paper Scissors open studio event in Houston at the International Quilt Festival. The base is silk paper made with one of Artistic Artifacts
awesome silk paper packs. I added machine stitching, hand stitching, couching and some beading of course. The journal is about 4"x6", a great carry around size. I love all the wispy edges of the silk paper and the great textures of the stitching.
The photos from last few posts sure have had a lot of pink in them! It just looks so darn great with my favorite yellow green and my second favorite orange! I will have to find something not pink for tomorrow's sneak peek photo!
