I have been busy assembling another journal for my etsy site. My journals are very time consuming but I love making them, adding lots of details and artwork. I have also added some more collage prints to my shop too.
Below are some of the pages and covers.
There's lots of fabric and pieces of hand dyed lace doilies, sari silk, buttons and collage work, old clothing labels, prints of my artwork and original cut out pieces of my art.
DISINTEGRATION AT LAST
Finally I've made something with the disintegration project that was conducted by Seth from the Altered Page blog. We hung or buried papers and fabric etc outside for six months to see what would happen. Mine went through drought, bush fires and eventually some rain and lots of wind.
Below are the stages and results of my bundle.
There was very little change, just a touch of rust.
I've decided to add some of the papers, including the gum leaves, rusty washers and raffia that I used to tie the bundle with, to some of my textured papers and use them as future journal covers.
I don't seem to be able to get away from journals at present.
