Smaller Journals


© 2009 Tracy Borders

Love the size of these & am thinking of making some to sell in my shop. They're each approxiamately 5" by 6".

I included two pictures of them since in the top photo you can see the Angelina Fibers better in the Green, Turquoise & Purple Squiggle journals & the variation of color in the top left journal.

The bottom picture shows the texture better in the middle brown journal.

These journals were made for a swap in the Surface Design Group.

I'll try to explain from top to bottom what each journal is made from.................

the top left journal (peacock colors) & the middle brown journal were made by manipulating modeling paste & then adding color with Golden Acrylics.

The green & brown with turquoise journals were made of hand dyed bamboo fabric, Angelina Fibers & eyelash yarn that were free motion quilted. The purple journal embellished with metal squiggles, was hand dyed cotton with layers of rubber stamping, Angelina Fibers & hand dyed cheesecloth.

I think the colors turned out great in each of the journals & I hope the ladies on the receiving end of these enjoy them as much as I did making them :)

The only word for these books is 'scrumptious'. They are lovely and the colours gorgeous. I am sure the ladies who receive them will be thrilled.
