GALLERY is here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=429181.0#axzz2liffwRQa

This will be a quick swap before the holidays - we will swap one fabric art journal page with one partner. (If there is an odd number of swappers, I may make a 3-person group. Swapper A will send to Swapper B who will send to Swapper C who will send to Swapper A.) If this goes well and we all enjoy the process, we'll meet back here in January and do it again!

You will craft a "page" - more like a quilt block - with unfinished sides and back and your partner will add it to his/her art journal or make a fabric book. Each swapper may choose the size they would like and the theme and their partners will have artistic license to interpret this theme as they wish. This could also be called a mixed-media fabric art journal page because you will add, incorporate and embellish with lots of goodies - fabric, buttons, ribbon, charms, sequins, paper and whatever else you can think of and/or already possess.

As in all swaps, communication is key for a happy swap. So chat with your partner, chat in the discussion thread and ask questions This is a new technique and medium for most of us so we're all newbies in this swap.

About the photo above:

I bought a few Maya Road linen books on clearance this summer and they have been haunting me. This one is 4 x 6 " but when I measured it, it was a bit smaller than that.

I cut a wool felt piece, 1/2-inch smaller than the size of the book. I then cut the batik fabric and dot-glued it onto the felt - I don't always like to use pins. I cut out the bird, wing and beak and then scrappy-embroidered it with pearl cotton. I glued on the fortune - I had planned to sew it as well but I forgot as I decided to add all of the buttons around the edge. I just glued the felt/fabric piece to the linen book. I think I will go through my collection of fortunes and see what else I can find and that inspires me.
