More journals

I'm working on decorated papers and fabric pages for three new journals for my etsy store. I love making the journals, seeing them evolve. I find by working on a few at a time I can mix and match the pages.

I'm thinking of offering some of my paintings as prints on my etsy and also making laser prints using sections of my decorated papers, for use in art making.






This is a print of one of my canvases, reduced in size. It's printed on archival paper and stitched behind acetate. I enjoy the combination of fabric and paper.






I've also added another pack of decorated papers to my etsy

Your work is fantastic. Your colors are so lush and happy. I can't believe you work in so many different mediums. I'm going to have to have a look at your jewelry.

Fabulous Journals Ro!! I think that prints of some of your papers on fabric sheets would be a wonderful addition to your ETSY offerings. Similar to what Dj pettit does with her bird images!!! I would be a firstr customer for sure!!

What ever you touch is PURE MAGIC, woman!!!!
Big Hugs!

I would imagine that the prints would sell really well. A lot of artists sell prints of their originals at a lower price. I think it is more an affordable way of being able to purchase an artist's work.
I like the idea of being able to incorporate the paper prints into fabric pieces, it adds another dimension.

Ro you certainly do keep yourself busy...your journal pages are wonderful. Always that special Ro touch!
The prints are a great idea as it offers art at an affordable price.
Mmmm love the colours in those beautiful packs for your etsy shop. Really lift a journal page!
