Fabric Collage 2

Many of you saw this photo I showed on Day 17, before I cut these into hearts in preparation of the embellishment for a scrappy visual journal.  So today, I created a second embellishment.

Instead of photographing step-outs, I decided to create a sub-assembly, then scan it.


Here is the completed assembly which I will add to the front of a scrappy journal.  I can't believe this took me all day (over six hours) to make this small assembly from start to finish.  This is made from bits and pieces of the gelatin plate circles Kathy created, a piece of yellow felt, a Sharpie, and a background of leaves and ferns I colored using various dyes, in addition to my shimmering mists.

Thanks for joining me as we begin to wind down on these rework, recycle, repurpose, reduce, reeducate, and reward posts leading up to Earth Day.  This is Day 19 of 22, and I am incredibly grateful for your continued support of my projects.

A great start for a scrappy book, E! May have taken six hours but it looks fab. Well worth the time taken! Surprises me still how quickly time can go by when I'm creating. One starts around nine-ish and before you know it, it's like why am I so hungry and the Girls are fussing? I look up and it's dark outside!! Have a wonderful day, E! Warm hugs from the me and the Girls

Very creative use of the gelli circles! I really like how this one came out even if it did take a long time!

Such pretty color and there is something special about color on fabric.

Did you go to the Porter Street art show yesterday? It was really good. My favorite was the sculptures.
