Unscripted Sketches 03








Well, a new sketch comes out every Saturday from Unscripted Sketches, so sorry, but no bonus points for guessing what I did today. This is the journal I made today with the sketch to get me going. Design Team member April continues to assure me that I may play with the sketch and make it my own, so I took a few liberties again today. My tree branch is the part of the sketch that looks like a tied ribbon and my leaves are the knot and bow. I am including a picture of the book open to show the front and back at the same time as well as a closeup of the little bird.
The inside is full of ledger paper that I scored at a second hand store on a little adventure today. I removed it from the ledger and cut it to size, saving the top part of the paper and the covers for some other things. And it really does lie flat. It just looks bunchy in the photo.

  10. Hi Jane,Love your fabric journals. I also love fabric with text. I have been collecting them for about 10 years and trying to make my own. I found some tone on tone fabric, it has white text printed on white colored fabric. I just paint over it with fluid arylics, then I have any color I want. I only got about 3 yards of it at the time, I need more!See you in 6 weeks.
