A fun discovery, and three new Mixed Media Collage Fabric journals....

Such fun! I finally figured out how to create crinkled, looped, seam binding, fringe!

Also in the post are my latest three Mixed Media Fabric collage journals....

Lots of sweet tags will give you even more journaling possibilities. Each page hosts a decadent bundle of vintage trims, and even new designer trims. Handmade Blooms (flowers) and elegant bling, continue the opulence of the 'Austen' years.

And here is 'LITTLE GYPSY' a fun mixed media collaged fabric journal. Also on sale in my Etsy Shop HERE.
 Well, it's almost Halloween, and that brings back memories of all the years my mom dressed me up with all of her scarves, necklaces, and outlandish clothes! I LOVED LOVED LOVED being a GYPSY even for just one day.  

So, creating this wonderful LITTLE GYPSY mixed media fabric book was GREAT FUN! Every page of this 5"x9' fabric collaged book, will bring to mind, the sweetness and freedom, these young gypsies grew up with. Let your imagination run wild....

Each page is collaged, layer upon layer of vintage fabrics, trims, laces....and throughout, you'll notice some lovely, up-cycled designer trims and beads giving a beautiful bling to each page/collage. 

The last two pages have pockets in which you can tuck a sweet memory, picture, or treasure.












And who doesn't need a special 'SPELLS & ENCHANTMENT' mixed media fabric collage journal!

 Halloween was always a special holiday in our family. My sister Jean used to go crazy decorating the front yard, garage (think spooky haunted house. She'd always outdo herself every year!

So, it's my way of celebrating, to create a magical, mixed media collaged, book of spells and ENCHANTMENTS!
