2322 - ARTIST (Letter) JOURNAL

Sheet music
over at 
MOO MANIA & MORE
for the next two weeks!
I hope to see you at the challenge blog (again). 



I have  a cover for a  Letter Journal
to share for this topic.



AND of course I'm once again joining the inspiring 
 Chris of Pear Shaped Crafting
She is our enthusiastic host this July  at Art Journal Journey 
and her amazing theme is 
Art for Art's Sake.


 It's a collaged cover with different paper scraps, sheet music, napkin and modelling paste applied through a selfmade stencil. The border is sewn by machine and the  
ARTIST JOURNAL label is embroidered by hand on the previously stamped  words.
I will also link this cover to Wen's Simply Neutrals #46


MUCH
LOVE
from
Susi

  1. WOW. Sheet music is something I love to play with. You turned this into a genuine beauty. I love that you even made your own stencil. I think that is brilliant. Of course, I love, love the sewing. It is fabulous, and adds so much more to the piece.

    I am so grateful to you. You have really created a ton of beautiful art for Chris's theme this month at Art Journal Journey. Thank you beyond belief for that!

  8. Oh, bist du fleißig bei der Hitze, wieder ganz nach meinem Geschmack so Ton in Ton, tolles Cover!
    Im Moment ist bei mir ja alles abgedunkelt, alle Rollläden runter, seit Tagen schon, und so im Dunklen kann ich gar nicht so gut arbeiten... Heute muss ich wohl doch den Ventilator aus der Garage holen, denn nachts gibt's keine Abkühlung mehr.
    Liebe Grüße Ulrike

  12. This is a gorgeous cover Susi. For a minute I thought you were going to say butterflies again, but sheet music is a good one. I shall have to find my music sheets and make a page. :) With all the rain we've been having I have had lots of studio time to play, and hopefully my mess will be cleaned up soon enough so I can play some more. Hope all is well. Hugs-Erika
