Fabric Jouarnal P. 9,10,11,12
I really have 16 pages nearly done, and I have not put it together yet as it is still wordless. I have some words ready and some other embellishments to add, I need to tidy up the work area because I have lost some small bits in the jumble of fabric, and fibers.It would of been smarter to not cut the words apart yet. The pages as you see them are long, they get folded in half. I would like to do 4 more it is really enjoyable work. Not work at all, I especially like the used dryer sheets and there is a lot of that with stamping and paint on the pages that are most blue. The Powdered ink also works well on these sheets and will set nicely when ironed between two pieces of fabric, I let it dry and then heat set it.
If I had a grandchild I would use photos of them and create a quilted me book, just photos of them. I imagine anyone would enjoy one of these with favorite photos of their past, I could do one of myself maybe??? or the cousins, you know what that means it means digging around and hunting for things, and then the photos you have in your mind's eye you can't find.
The painting you see you have seen before a couple posts down, it has been digitally altered with fabric behind it and then the magic click that makes the painting or photo transparent. So magic.
Happy Valentines to you, wishing you a day that has some love and kindness.
