Yes, for March – Between travel, company, gardens, an insatiable hunger to take a break and read and…well probably a few other factors as well, I’ve been living and loving a respite from posting. I’m renewed. It’s one of the rainiest winters in recent memory, so I should be caught up in no time.
My BJP is to create journal covers. This is a real departure from the first two, which were more detailed and larger in size – and also huge time commitments. This is a smaller size, around 4 x 2.5 inches. The ground is a handmade fabric quilted collage inspired by Teesha Moore’s fabric collage techniques. The focal point is an old toy hot rod. there is another quilted piece for the back cover – I have yet to create the spine and bind it.
It is fun, and quite freeing, to work in a much less precise way. It gives room for more ideas to percolate. The next piece, April, will be in the same size format, and a different beading approach.
As always I appreciate your thoughts, comments and suggestions.
