art journal featuring collage; original poetry and photographs (digital); found fabrics, papers and objects; stitch
some fabrics have also been rusted or plant-dyed, including silks
my original poems (hand-written on paper made by a friend) are ‘veiled’ with dress pattern tissue; i also veiled some of the photographs (also original)
this journal is an artistic and emotional response to my husband’s family history connection to maria island
I just love this journal and had a good look at it when in pilgrim cottage so nice to be able to look at it again and again here thanks
I’m so glad you like it – thank you! =D
every page has something different and interesting….Question: how did you stitch the fabric to the back of the card at the back of the jornal, didn’t the needle break?
I stitched onto a sheet of paper first, then glued the whole thing in – makes it a lot easier, and hides the stitching on the back! =D
