my whispers journal

     I haven't posted here in a while but that doesn't mean I haven't been working. I found 
   Kelly Rae Roberts book ,Taking Flight, years ago. It's a wonderful book full of inspiration
   and new techniques. I picked it up again to read and decided I would try every project.
   This is the first one... creating a whispers art journal using hardback book covers as a

        This is the front cover...

       Inside pages...

                                                                                                 and the back cover...
         The next part is a technique from artist DJ Pettit for painting on fabric. I decided to make
       a banner to hang on my window. 
       So that's what I'm working on now...oh plus my winter ripple blanket that is. I also need to
      put holes in my journal and tie it together with the black velvet ribbon I bought, but I'm
      having a hard time finding the cutting tool I need.  I'll keep trying and post a picture of it
      when it's all done.

  1. I was just telling a very good friend that I have several book covers that I should turn into a journal! Yours is absolutely beautiful. I think that I stumbled upon you via a post on hello soul hello mantra on Facebook. You are a very talented artist. Keep inspiring us others;-)
