I am so excited about this. Sorry about the shadows but you get the idea. I took some fabric I found on the discount table and painted on it for a fabric journal. I have been wanting to try it for weeks now and thanks to my friend Karin, who found some tutorials for me, I finally found some time last night to whip it together. The fabric was off white with bulky threads every so often woven in and I put gesso on it and then put paint over that with my brayer. I added some extra texture with rubber stamps and then sewed it together into a journal cover. I only had a couple of hours to put this together from start to finish so I used my Rosie drawing for the front. I am going to put together the inside pages this weekend when I am relaxing at the beach. I have been buying all kinds of embellishments in pink, black and cream and I'm really excited to get going on the inside signatures. I want to try and use fabric and paper together on the pages which will be different than what I have done in the past with my journals. This particular journal you can add signatures as you go. I took Donna Downey's inspiration journal class on this technique and it is really simple and quick too. I am still working in my other journal and have some pages to share but I think it will have to wait until next week when I get back from the beach. Have a great weekend everyone and happy journaling!
