Last month I joined an online class with Mary Ann Moss which is called Remains of the Day making a Fabric Journal and using up all those scraps for the signatures. This has opened up a whole new world for me and perfect to start using up all that stuff I am saving. What a hoot this class has been. She is a wonderful teacher and provides a lot of great information and videos.
I used two different pieces of fabric and added a lot of decorative stitching. I then added fibers to it with some more stitching. Then added the lace and buttons for decorations.
This one was done with canvas that I had painted and stenciled and some cotton fabric that I had dyed and wrote on with a fabric marker. I then added the ladies which I think are a riot. Way too much.
I made this journal out of a piece of fabric that I really liked but it didn't look the same after I got done adding strips of silk diagonally using a ziz zag stitch. I then added these wild and crazy ladies fabric which I found up in Prescott at a little fabric store
