○ Hand stitched Journal
journal page ... vintage fabrics, lace, voile. buttons and a photograph which has been sewn into the page using a running stitch. If you're not good at hand sewing you could do this step using a sewing machine - it would look great either way. Fabulous pages.
How cute is this? I think I need to get myself a bind-it-all.
Over the years I have had folks inquiring about what tools/mediums I use in my visual journals. Thought I would share a bit, basically I start drawing with a Faber-Castell PITT artist pen (usually no pencil, just jumping in feet first with the ink), then I apply color with my Winsor & Newton watercolor traveling kit, and finally I punch up colors and add details with Prisma Color Pencils.
