{Rose Garden Vintage Fabric Journal}

I wanted to share this Rose Garden Fabric Journal that I recently completed. For this project, I decided to mix both faces and rose images throughout. I print my images on June Tailor Fabric Sheets (inserted into my printer.) I used a mixture of vintage pink Swiss dot fabric and muslin as the page backgrounds. I incorporated antique/vintage collars, laces,and fabric remnants throughout the journal as well. Lots of hand sewing adding little rosebud millinary flowers and mother of pearl buttons.

I like the mixture of the pink fabrics and the muslin backgrounds. Something a little different then my usual journals. The sun finally came out this morning after days of rain and grey, so I grabbed my camera and tried to get the best light possible.

{Merry Month of May}

Happy May!
This is National Stroke Awareness Month. For those of you that do not know, I am a stroke survivor suffering a Ischemic Stroke in my brain stem on July 24, 2014. I was 50 years old. I feel very strongly about alerting others about the risk of stroke. It hits ALL AGES and does not discriminate.

This year, I will doing the 1 mile Heart Walk on Saturday, May 6th. It will take every once I have to do this, but I am bound and determined I will. I am still looking for sponsors for this event and if you are interested you can donate any amount here:  Heart Walk 2017 Donations

{Edwardian Ladies Journal}

This journal I call “The Edwardian Ladies” because I tried to find old photos from that era. I have always loved that period of fashion and tried to use white fabrics, lace, silks, and accents. I had to paint the chipboard album white, and that took several coats of paint. The fabric panels were sewn and glued to the chipboard backs. I also added old sheet music, and ephemera. Lots of old antique lace was added throughout the album and also tied in the book rings. Prima roses highlight the front cover.
