I wanted to include my interests in paper/mixed media, fabrics & photography. For the journal page, I took a photograph of a view from our home and altered it in Photoshop to give an impressionistic feel. To include the paper/mixed media interest, I added the woman as a journal platform.
In Quilting Arts magazine special holiday issue, I saw some mixed-media samplers that had this great homespun feel about them. That was the inspiration for my art side. I had to shorten the fabric part to allow for the binding. I liked how this turned out. I'm so excited to see what all the artists create for this chunky when it is done. Big THANKS to Jessie for inspiring us in this project.
