I have a new computer! The other was 7 years old and getting tired. It took all day yesterday to buy and set it up. Now I will be spending quite a bit of time learning it and the new printer that probably does too much-seduced by all the buttons and functions it had.
This is the journal I did in a class called Ink Painting with Journal from http://www.joggles.com/ The teacher was so giving; we learned a lot. Obviously, I haven't learned to edit on the new computer-will take a while, and this is my first try at anything. DH sets things up among much editorial comment! We used a number of methods to get the ink on fabric and then pieced the journal cover. The velvet leaves were leftover as was the white flower. I had made beaded samples from Diane Fitzgerald's book on flowers and had the center already done. It worked well here.
