Today we share a link to a past post on the second of the month. Click on button in right hand column to join in with our hostess Elizabeth
I wanted to share a past post about an art journal I made-totally out of my norm-but I loved it. I had the guidance of my online friend Shroo-whom I miss as she has not posted in over a year now, she is in England. She gave me a tutorial on how to take an old book-tear out the pages-leaving in enough paper on each page to then stitch on a new page. This was quite fun. I bought a stack of handmade papers-I hadn't start making my own papers at the time- and then used embroidery threads and ribbons etc to stitch them back into the book. I also sewed back in some of the pages from the original book, made pockets even-I was quite proud of myself. I am using this journal to save samples and information of my hand dyed yarns and fabrics.
and here is a link to my second on the 2nd this post came out a bit distorted when I brought it over-easier to read if go to the link.
also just a note Sir John and Izzy were a pair of Canada geese that nested in one of our ponds and returned each year til this year.
I also had made an album at that time on photobucket that shows more photos go here to view
