Cloth Paper Scissors

With all of the excitement of the exhibition, I didn't find time to thank all of the wonderful staff at Cloth Paper Scissors, especially Jenn Mason, Barb Delaney and Sally Murray. They published six pages of a journal I created for their CPS fabric special - the July August edition. They were wonderful to work with, a very competent team. It was a thrill to receive CPS in the mail along with the return of my book this week.


This is the July/August issue.


This is the cover of the journal.


This shows how thick it is.


This is the spine.


Two more of the fabric pages.


And a couple more.

I've decided to keep this journal as I don't have one for myself. I'll be adding a smaller one to my Etsy along with some other things over the weekend. It needs restocking and I have quite a few things to add, I just have to find the time.


Thank you to everyone once again for your support in commenting on having seen my journal in the magazine, it's nice to know people appreciate what I do.

I'll be teaching a two day workshop making a similar journal to this one in March 2012 at the
Art is You Retreat in Sydney.

I'll also be teaching a one day workshop making a smaller decorated paper journal in April 2012 at Queen of Hearts Retreat in Melbourne

Looking wonderful - I don't always get CPS, but may have to hunt out a copy of the latest issue now!

I agree with Kim! Congrats on getting your work featured in CPS, my copy arrived this morning and I have been reading it in the sunshine in between 'bouts' of gardening. It's always useful to have a good reason for a breather! I love the journal and will definitely have a go at creating one myself but I would like to think of a theme first.

Hi Ro .. Congratulations on Cloth Paper and Scissors! How fabulous for you. I just got my copy in the mail, so now I will reread all about you and your journal. Thanks for dropping into my blog. I have a great fondness for Australia and some very dear friends who have been a cohesive group for 45 years! YIKES -- we were all young and foolish together in Europe. I'll drop back again. You must be so excited! Very best regards from Mexico, Donna :o)

I loved the article in the magazine, i was totally inspired to try it. I really liked the lush surfaces of your printed paper and fabrics. My attempt was pale in comparison. Looking forward to seeing more of your work now I have "discovered" you!
