I have been having a blast...! I have been sewing and painting and gluing and all kinds of things the last couple of days. My BFF Pamela Joy got me started and out of a rut, and I have been really having a lot of fun. One thing she did to help me, was to get me started working with fabric more in my mixed media art. I now LOVE fabric and trims, and all of the textures and designs! I decided to use some of the fabric that I have accumulated recently to cover a Victorian book that I have started altering. Here are some of the book covers that were on the book originally, but I decided to recover the book in a style more suitable to the inside of the book...
Now, here is what it looks like, although the scan is a bit blurry you can get the idea...
What have YOU been working on??? Made any hand painted or fabric covers for your art journals/altered books? I would love to see a link in your comment post, linking to your most recent mixed media art piece you are doing or just finished!
