original art cards

I've been making some original fabric, collage cards from tiny pieces of fabric that I have left over when making my journals. They are now in my Etsy store. I love working and stitching these small pieces of art. The layers are built up and machine stitched, then I hand embellish them with beads, sequins and things from my jewellery treasure trove. The whole piece is then machine stitched to cream card stock. They come with a cream envelope, but they can also be framed and hung as pieces of original art.






Now back to making more journals.


On a very sad note, Stacey Apeitos, the lovely lady who started Paperific here in Melbourne lost her battle with cancer last week, she will be sadly missed.
