Books Galore

I've been making some pocket books which are constructed from a single sheet of paper (or fabric). I like to decorate tags to put into the 4 pockets. I've used prints, collage and markers.

This fabric book is made the same way just using fabric bonded onto craft weight interfacing. I chose the theme "geometric" based on the background fabric.

The book below is a mixed media travelling journal. I used a map of Australia from an old book to go with the travelling theme.

Also managed to make a couple more fabric postcards.

This 'n' That

I've been making more postcards. Above is my first try at an altered photograph. It's a photo taken at the War Memorial in Melbourne. I've sanded it down and scratched in patterns and words. I added colour with aqua markers. Lastly it was stamped and then doodled with gel pens.

The cards below are all mixed media fabric postcards with free machine embroidery.

Here is my latest fairy door ATC; it belongs to the Fairy Godmother.

Some mixed media journal pages:

A dragon pencil drawing:

And a pocket letter filled with Gelli prints and other goodies.
