Somewhere Under Wonderland

I did not need another journal.
But I made one anyway!!!
These are my current ones.
And this is my newest one.
Fresh off the table.
I used an image from one of my other journal pages that I printed onto fabric and paired the text with it.
TA DA!!!! New journal.
I am using this for my pages inspired by 
Roxanne Coble's new on-class Lyrical
Pages are made from Fabriano140 hot press paper
9.5" wide by 10" long. 
20 pages total.
On other fronts I am deep in the throes of making more journals for my shop. 

One is a new design, part 'Curious Bundle' part traditional journal. These and others will be listed soon. 
Stay tuned.

Fabric Play!

Someplace Else
with a matching
messenger bag.

Journal is 10" tall by 9.5" wide and holds 10 pages of 140 lb watercolor paper. The tote is 12.5" wide by 13" tall and has a 23" strap. There is a jean pocket inside the tote that can hold a variety of items. I've listed them in my Etsy shop.

My fabric and sewing machine have been speaking to me the past few weeks. I tried unsuccessfully to 'shush' it but I could no longer resist the urge and have spent countless hours sewing and dreaming up stuff to sew. 

That led me to create these guys. Inspired by Roxanne Coble's On-Line Creature Class. 
Very odd and strangely comforting. 
I'm calling them 'curious personalities'.

And lastly this guy who is still being transformed.
They are a hodge podge collection of scraps, leftovers, paint stained fabrics, paint and various bits and pieces. I feel a bit like Dr. Frankenstein; piecing them together and bringing them to life.

22 Years On

2 weeks ago today hubby and me
spent 4 days here.
shores of Lake Superior to celebrate
our 22nd wedding anniversary.
We had an amazing and relaxing time.
I set up a mini art station here and spent 
most of my time creating while watching
the lake which never disappoints.
Time well spent within the pages
of my journals.
