Fiber Journal cont....
In these two pages you see small pieces, a lining from a jacket, the pink swirl with brown, used dryer sheets that have been painted, and BTW I have no experience or direction for this I just took a stab at it. The areas around the Goldfinch are dryer sheets also the area above the pink and brown swirl, the face also that is so blue and rather blurred. I used stamps on fabric, and paint on fabric, also some vintage crochet, and embroidery. The embroidery that says "EM". there are portions of a silk shirt, a dresser scarf, and a print of a small painting of mine. I have done 8 pages.
I find this rather relaxing, it is a trial and error sort of thing, an excuse to sew without really having to think that much. Today and now it is today hours later than last evening, I think how to be more dynamic, have more splash in the next pages or should the whole journal be this rather passive looking design and color?
It is amazing the amount of fabric I have and the tiny amount it takes to make a journal, you could take snippets from the hem of your clothing and have enough fabric.
