new journal

Made from fabric printed from earlier Photoshop experiments. Photos aren't great, but you get the idea! There is much more depth in the printed fabric than shows here.

Not sure what i think of the blue stripe, but it looks ok in real life.

The inside is also blue. I was able to make the pockets to hold the journal and wrap it around the front using one strip of fabric.

playing with photoshop!

I'll make a journal for the first person to figure out what the these started out as (of what was the original picture?).

Journal Twin Powers.. UNITE!

Will anyone else get the reference in the title??

Anyhoo... the fraternal twin to the previous journal. I started out thinking that I would keep alternating the pieces until I had one large piece, but this one yelled "STOP!". So I did. I never understood what my Rice Crispies were trying to tell me, but sometimes I understand my fabric!

Quilted Journal Cover

a completed journal cover... Inside is a purchased blank lined journal and a place to put a pen and pencil.

The back is playing with pieced curves using a technique recently learned in Wen Redmond's class. (and, of course, enhanced with sparkly thread. gotta have the sparkle!)

This will be donated to the prize table at the December NLQG meeting... Hope to see you there!!
