I've decided to make a journal for myself. There are so many techniques I would like to try, so why not a journal?? This is the frontpage and the back - slightly bigger than A4 - made with cotton fabric, wool, Angelina, organza and silk yarn. There are pockets on the inside, just in case I need to make a note or five.... Since I have no idea of how many pages I'll end up with, I have made eyelets on both pages, so I can use a string to tie it all together.
The inspiration for making this journal came from these two ladies, Bente Nysæther Malm og Sue Bleiweiss. If you haven't visited their blogs, you can look forward to lots of tips and ideas!!
I have also signed up for Patti Medaris Culea's Stargazer Tome. Patti is among other things also a doll maker, and she has made patterns for a tome with some fun and fantastic kind of dolls. By now I think we are 40 persons that have signed up for a Yahoo-group where we can share ideas and photos of work in progress - and hopefully - at the end of 2008 we all have finished a tome with 12 pages and box to keep the "treasure" in. Each page will have different techniques, fabric printing, Tyvek, beads, felting and so on. You can find out more here.
