If you need reminding, this journal is made up of pages of different sizes so that you can see bits of them behind one another. Click here to see my original post on this project.
There is only a bit of paper on my pages. I mainly used fabric, ribbon, trimmings, netting, and some beads. Here are the two pages as they will appear in the book (I haven't glued them in yet):
Basically, I covered a piece of cardstock with mustard colored fabric, then added strips of other fabrics, a bit of purple netting and tacked them down with some machine stitching. The tag and ATC were done on a recent weekend art retreat (which I have yet to blog about....coming soon!), and they just so happened to be the right colors to use here. Don't you love when that happens?
This page started with the same mustard colored fabric. Then roughly cut squares of dark red and turquoise, a bit of 7 Gypsies paper on the left, a strip of Japanese fabric down the middle, and then the whole thing covered with olive netting. More machine stitching and some beads on the right edge, and another ATC from the retreat.
My next journal to work in will be Elena's, but I won't be getting that in the mail. I'll be picking it up in person NEXT WEEK when I fly to Key Largo (well, I'll actually be flying to Miami if you want to be technical) for our second annual Keys4Art.....six days of wonderful art, fabulous friends, great food, and more than a few excellent mojitos.
