1  star-shape hand-bound accordion-style visual journal (multiple views) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by creativecat on: November 29, 2005 07:33:07 AM
I created this for a class a couple of months ago.  All photos, text and binding are original.  Fabric and ribbon were purchased.

All of the pages fold out as one REALLY long (7 yards) connected piece of paper/fabric.  Although I am happy with the end result, I do not recommend making an accordion-style book that is so long.

2  mixed media postcard in Completed Projects by creativecat on: November 29, 2005 07:13:29 AM
25 people each designed the front of a postcard using the word "unified" in their chosen language.  The backs of the postcards (not pictured) all fit together as one poster that says "unified" in English. Each person sent a card to everyone else so each person ended up with 25 different cards that all fit together.  I guess the project was similar to a swap except everyone sent the same thing to everyone on the list.

The one I designed is Czech (standardni).

To create the imagery, I started by embroidering the letters on canvas.  Then I collaged over the whole thing with mulberry papers and gloss medium. I scanned in the finished image and sent prints to everyone.

Anyway, I haven't seen anyone combine collage and embroidery or really even embroidery with anything so I thought I would share and maybe inspire someone!
