reading and writing

Read and make art.

Remember those fabric pieces I showed you earlier? Well I made a book describing each piece..sort of like a journal. Actually I didn't make the book, just made it my own! Instead of just writing in a journal, I wanted to enhance it and make the piece a little more unique. I pasted the photos on one page and talked about it on the opposite page. I bought the book for a dollar at the library right next door to our apartment. So great! You can find them just about anywhere... Take a look!

I wanted to have the journal match the rest of pieces, that's why there are so many embellishments. You don't of course have to add this much! You can glue / hot glue your pieces together to make it easier, but I sewed each piece with a different colored thread. I also used sheer fabric in parts to see the words underneath. Make one yourself! Choose a book that suites who you're making the journal for or whatever purpose it is supposed to have. You might be surprised what you can find! Check out this group that made books they found into collages.

Enjoy!
Sincerely,
Sarah
