This one will be heading to South Africa for a fabric book swap that I am participating in with the Mixed Media Art Friends yahoo group hosted by Belinda Spiwak.
These are the beginning stages of side one; panels 1, 2 and 3. (This journal will have four panels on each side.)
Since this is a flower swap book, I decided to add some silk flowers that I took apart and sewed on using a glass bead as the center and adding some beaded stamens to hold the petals in place. The flowers also add continuity to the panels and the overall piece.
Lovely! Will look for these to come in as you post them up, whoever is in the swap with you is very lucky 🙂
I love these, its something I’d like to have a go at.
