Today I took the last stitch to complete my Concertina Journal.
Here is side one.
and side two.
I’ve been working on this for a little over a month now and have enjoyed every minute. I’ve learned some new techniques and lessons of what not to do on the next one. The combination of stitching and beading has given this piece a wonderful texture and the layered elements are a feast for the eyes. The words are attached with snaps and can be changed out, hence the name Perpetual Inspiration. You can read about all of the individual panels and stages used to create this journal by clicking on the word Concertina in my Simply Tags box on the right hand side of the page.
Thank you for taking this artful journey with me.
