I made a slightly different journal this week. A bit more fun and a bit more bright!. I added a free motion sunflower that I made a year or so ago .. once I made it I didn’t know what to do with it so it has just sat there shining at me …..I also did some hand stitching and added some buttons to the journal to spark it up even more.
I left a few of raw edges on this one so that the gentle fraying becomes part of the design.
Sunflower made by free motion stitching onto water solvable fabric. Once the stitching is complete, simply soak in water and the base fabric magically disappears leaving a lace like flower. I used three different yellows and orange to make up the flower.. and LOTS of stitching.
This journal also has a ribbon bookmark with a fabric tassel.
It is available for sale here as a kit if you are interested. My Art Journal Kits include the journal and a packet of coordinating fabric scraps, ribbon and papers, to start you on your journaling journey.
