Art Journal Cover and Sew Somerset Article


Here's the cover I made for my journal for our trip to France. May do some more stitching.
Having fun with the pages inside...painting, glueing, stitching...


And I used one of the fabric flowers like the ones in this article I wrote for Sew Somerset for the closure on my journal. 


Here's the cover...lots of fun stuff inside including an article by Viv Sliwka of Hen's Teeth blog and the one below by another English fiber artist Priscilla Jones. Fellow Artfiberfest teacher Roxanne Padgett has a colorful article on Stenciled Fabric Journals as well.

Hi Mary,
I saw that magazine at our local fabric store and even flipped through the pages quickly, but I must have missed your article! I will go back and take a look!
Congratulations : )
So exciting that you are going to France! A friend brought me back a tiny Eiffel Tower key chain recently...a little treasure.
Have a safe and wonderful journey xoxo
