This is an art journal that I made as part of an art swap organised by KiwiCarole at Madness and Mess blog. I filled the journal with many different types of paper and card. The idea was that every page would be a starter prompt for a journaling diary or art journal and would inspire the artist that used the journal.
The cover is another "fabric paper" creation from serviettes. Then there are layers of chiffon and paper and a computer printed image on silk fabric that I did from a photograph of an angel I took at a cemetery and a scan of a painted background that I did. All stitched together with my trusty sewing machine (broke a needle doing this!)
This shows the inside cover and the letter that I wrote to the swap partner explaining my creation. It folds up and goes in the pouch on the inside cover.
This is the back cover made from a vintage board game.
These are a selection of pages from inside the book. Some were scrapbooking papers, some were vintage book pages, some drawing paper and card, old ledger paper, canvas paper...
I was worried that I was making something by hand and then I would never see it again overseas somewhere, so I made an exact duplicate of it at the same time. So I sent one away on my swap and then I kept the other myself. Now I don't know whether to use it or keep it as it is!
