Journals For Sale

30 09 2011

Facebook is being mean to me.  It won’t let me upload photos from my hard drive.  I have small journals for sale.  The covers are made from my photos…photos of nature and photos of the cloth and paper cloth that I make.  The journal inside measures 5″ x 7″ and is easily replaced when this one is full.  I am selling them for $17 plus $2 shipping.  If you live in Illinois I will need to charge 6.25% sales tax.  I am going to put some photos up here on my blog.  If you are interested comment here on my blog or message me on FB and we can make payment and shipping arrangements.  Christmas is coming and these will make nice small gifts for friends and family. Thanks for looking!

This journal cover is a photo of paper cloth that I recently made.  The paper cloth is  made with text, sheet music, used coffee filters, pattern tissue,  and copper tissue paper.  I really love how it came out.  After I made the cover, I did a photo transfer with TAP on the front…the photo of the girl is a copyright free image.  There is a brown rubber strap for the closure.





Stuff…

20 09 2011

I have not blogged in a while.  I have been busy prepping for a couple of shows as well as my solo exhibit.  But tonight I will post a couple of things.

First, I finished two silk scarves today.  They have been rusting for a little too long…I had a show over the weekend so they were left alone with the steel wool. But today I did more printing on them with  new Thermofax screen designs and a 50 cent on clearance bottle of Lumiere paint in Old Brass color.  It looks good on rust dyed silk.  One scarf  is silk habatoi and one is crepe de chine.

Then there is this photo of an unknown bush that I took at Harmonie State Park in Indiana a couple of weeks ago.  The flower is pretty but I don’t know what it is.

I am trying hard not to freak out as the countdown to the exhibit goes on and I look at all the work I have left to do.  I think I see some late nights coming! I wonder if I really have time to take a day off to go to St. Louis for the opening of Speaking of Fibers (I have two pieces in it) and to view Quilt National…you betcha I do!~
