'Chasing Rainbows Through A Winter Sky'
Curious Bundle Mixed Media Journal
I just listed this journal in my shop. They've been flying away quick as I can create them. I'm having fun coming up with themes and sewing into the wee hours each night. I have so much fabric and it is wonderful finding another way to send it out into the world to be enjoyed.
Here are few peeks at this journal.
This bundle is 8" tall and 7" wide and is 56" in length when it is fully unbundled. There are a total of 12 pockets in the journal holding 48 various pieces of paper. Each pocket has 2 plain pieces of watercolor paper, 1 paper element and 1 piece that has been painted, stained or dyed. This journal also has a wee, tiny, mini journal tucked inside one of it's pockets. It is all held snug with a scrappy closure. Some of the fabric used for the pockets is from my own collection of pieces I have stained, dyed and colored. The entire length of the journal is adorned with vintage laces and trims from various pieces in my stash. A funky button finishes off the look.
The cover is off set from the body
of the bundle.
Colors. On the left is the fabric that runs across the length of the inside of the journal which is in variegated jewel tones. On the right is the fabric I sewed to the jeans cover base and that runs entirely across the length of the bundle. These colors inspired the title of this bundle.

I'm playing the role of a happy holiday elf busy at work creating and playing with piles of fabric across a sea of thread.
