A fabric journal page

This is a page from my 'Today I Create' fabric journal.  I was thrilled beyond words when this journal was accepted into the Grand National quilt show in 2008. 
The background is handmade silk paper that I created.  I included some interesting fibres and threads as well as the silk in it.
Kirigami  is paper folding and cutting.   It's like when we were kids and made paper snowflakes.  I used one of these paper snowflakes as a resist stencil and applied two colors of purple paint to white cotton to create the mandala.  I then embellished the mandala with beads and sequins.
