I made this piece for something called the Travelling Moleskine project - I got sent a blank Moleskine with a theme (mine was 'Crafty'!) which you fill in a page of and then send on to someone else.

My idea was based on a quotation I found online and typography by my hero, Herb Lubalin.





I designed it on the computer, printed then pressed through with a pencil to transfer the outline into the book. I punched the holes with a needle first then backstitched the design.



hope you like it! More info & pics on my blog and Flickr

It's so beautiful! I just completed my first embroidery on paper, and it's no where near as pretty. 

Oh my stars was the first craft site that I  started frequenting, years ago; you have some great stuff!

Fantastic piece of work. The execution of the piece is wonderful.

If this doesn't get to be the pick of the month for this month, I'll buy a hat and then eat it.  Grin
