Journal page

The prompt for the month is words.  Is this vibrant enough?  I threw this page together quite quickly as I am not feeling all that great.  I used some sparkly tape to form the letters.  Love the sparkle!

Work in Progress Wednesday

I finished up my stitched butterfly.  I used my own hand dyed silk thread to stitch on to silk fabric.  This exists in a small silk book I created.  I am rethinking the book idea.  It is rather flimsy so I think I will cut out the pages and use the stitched pieces in something else.  Not exactly sure what at this moment but it will come to me.

Take a stitch Tuesday

I have used the buttonhole and the running stitch to form a cherry.  I am thinking I am going to do a sampler of stitches throughout this year.  It is definitely not a new idea but I have never done anything like this previously.   I am not sure that it totally fits with Sharon B's idea.   We will see where this takes me.

Slow stitching

This is my January stitch a day progress.  The fabric is twice stenciled and now I am stitching silver thread to it.  I decided I would do the same six-inch square size as last year as they may all come together into one big project down the road.  However, I am thinking about stitching on one project now.  After seeing others do that for 2017 and their marvelous results I am wanting to try it.  I can always start that in February.

Fabric Journal

I had a hard time getting a decent picture of my fabric journal pages.  This is a good as it gets.  I have quite a collection of them and it is time they get put into book form.   There is still a bit of work to be done on some of them but that can be done before or after I put them into a book form.  Right now I am pondering whether I should do one big book or two smaller ones.  What do you think?

Journal Page

The prompt for all of January is words.  Having already done a page about my word for the year (sufficient) I wasn't quite sure what do with this prompt.  This month is busy for me so I am trying to make the most of my time.  Yesterday I installed some of my art at the Ayr Library as I am the Artist in Residence this year.  I talked with the co-ordinators about a number of things including having a small display of altered book pages.  That was fresh in my mind while thinking about my journal page this week.  Therefore my journal page is doing double duty this week.  I will use this page as part of my display.  I found the word light on this page and encircled it with the candle flame.
