paint party friday

I am still working on my journal pages and really like how the use of fabrics and paper on the watercolors. As you might have guessed I have WAY too many trims, fabrics, papers, yarns etc. so I must use them all in my journals!
This was a new twist for me using manilla folders and folding them in an accordian, sewing on fused wools, papers, yes a color catcher sheet I painted and doodled on.
I fell in love with my cards using my photos and printing them on muslim so I had to put one in my journal page.
This is another journal fabric, painted cover which I will use with this collection, little fairies from lisa's altered art digital on etsy, my flower-trees and some fun recyled plastics. Exploring all these techniques have been amazing and FUN!! Give it a try. thank you for visiting, happy PPF!

  11. Hi Miriam! Sorry it's been quite some time since I stopped by for a visit; the end of the school year is always a chaotic time, and right now it looks like summer is turning out to be quite the same!

    What a GORGEOUS book! Though I'm a non-sewer and have only recently begun incorporating fabric into my collage work, I've always been fascinated by canvas and cloth books! I recently purchased a blank canvas book from Stampington, and someday I hope to start creating in it! I love how you've included a variety of materials in your book, from lace to muslin to painted dryer sheets (wow!), as well as bits of paper. My favorite part is definitely the photograph printed on muslin. Is this something that can be done on an inkjet printer? Cool!

  12. Such a great way to use those trims - this is stunning all together! Love the textures and your great focal images!
