Art Journal Pages: Collage, Fabric, Gesso

I’m exploring fabric. I was delighted to find over a dozen free sample books of beautiful fabrics from an interior design store. This can be a great way to find fabric for art projects. Using fabric opens up new possibilities, and I’m considering buying a simple sewing machine to play with. The idea of sewing in my art journal pages interests me, and many people do this with beautiful results.

I’m still such a beginner working with textiles and I know there are hundreds of ways to use this media to enhance my journal as well as other mixed media pieces. There are great books out there on mixing collage with fabric, fabric art, as well as wonderful images on Google.

So, experimentation continues and any new ideas are welcome!
