I received from "amnesia" a couple days back but unable to post pictures. BUT I CAN NOW! so here it is. She went with "express yourself" theme.She also made it two-sided.She didn't read the questionnaire very closely and by the time she was ready to send she realized it was only one-sided. I told her I didn't mind since I really don't have a "journal " yet.

I am so sorry it took so long to post pictures Embarrassed
"amnesia" Thank you so much. I really like it. You used my favorite colors and just LOVE the green cat. I also received tiny little kittens stickers but I used them already cuz they were soooo cute. Grin

I received two fantastic pages from pioneer9. I had house shaped pieces as my theme, and I just love both pages that she made me.

Green house:

Love the layers of tulle behind the words.

Purple/blue house:

Those little flowers!!

And here is the page I sent her. She had Pinterest inspired as one of her themes, and I saw she had this Mumford & Sons lyric pinned. Tried to do a scrappy behind-bars-taming-the-ghosts type thing.

Thanks again for swapping with me, pinoeer9! I love both of my pages! Smiley

Such beautiful pages so far!  I always love seeing the variety of talent here.  Cheesy

I received the other day from mandykaye and the holiday rush prevented me from getting back on until today.

She really did a fantastic piece!!! I absolutely love it!

My favorite parts are the beads and the metallic threading, and the stick woven in, and the batik fabric, and, well, - all of it! 

Thank you soo much, mandykaye- I hope you love your just as much.

Don't leave the gallery yet everyone, I just received from Smmarrt!

All wrapped up with a card...

Extras (buttons, ribbons and a book made from fabric samples)...

...and the art journal page! She explained in the card that the moon is made from sewing pattern paper decoupaged onto ticking with buttons sewn on, a vintage doily was added and it's covered with organza.

A lot of work and imagination was put into this! Thank you for a really thoughtful package and thank you for putting this swap together Smiley

Whoo hoo! I received today from JessKelly - a lovely textured nest and eggs page with bird stamp and button accents.

The eggs are embossed leather (or vinyl) and the stamps are encased in stitches. And a few buttons for good measure - I love buttons.

She included some beautiful postcards and the page was wrapped in extra fabric.

Thanks so much, Jessica. It's absolutely just right for me and my idea so I just love it. I will start round two right after Christmas because I know everyone will want to add pages to theirs as soon as you get your first one!!

Off to finish my page for Jessica.....

My turn!  I received two beautiful pages for my journal from playswithneedles...and such magic needles...hand sewing, machine sewing, textured fabric, lovely designs...I love them!


Embroidered circles!

They are the 4x6 but my scanner seemed to have made them look square!

Thanks for the start of my new fabric journal!!

I received from Rosie1981 yesterday evening! It was a little too dark outside to get a few good photos so I waited until this morning! There is actually something funny about my page…

Yesterday morning I was out running errands and for some reason in the car I was thinking about my Senior Yearbook and the quote I chose to go under my Senior portrait… Don't ask why that came to mind but I am 8 months pregnant so that could be part of it… Anyway I chose a quote from Mulan the Disney movie about a flower blooming in adversity… I thought how silly my fellow classmates thought I must have been for choosing a Disney movie quote… I went to a small school with a Senior class of 23! So I laughed to myself in the car and thought oh well… and didn't think about it again…

Then my Journal Page arrived….

I never mentioned this quote anywhere! She said she chose it because we are both going to have babies early next year and will both be raising 2 girls… and thought this was appropriate for me as a mom! Can you believe it??!! She chose the same quote! I guess I didn't chose too bad after all in Senior year!

Thanks so much! I LOVE the flag and how I had just been thinking about that quote yesterday! She also sent this awesome little bunting! I am going to put it up in the baby's room and then add it to her baby book!

My page arrived from witchhippie and it is lovely!  there was a little paint stickage en route but I easily repaired it.  I love the purple satin, the stars, and the burlap, great mixture, and good sentiment.

thanks so much!

and here's the one I sent her, she has received but hasn't had a chance to post

ok--I know this was a private swap, and I will post pics there as well, but I had to show off the pages that our organizer, Smmarrt, made...they are just too nice to keep in one place!

Still crossing fingers that the mail has not lost the pages I made for playswithneedles, but if so, I will post pics and send new ones!

I love this scrappy bird!

So much texture on this one!

The backgrounds are upholstery samples!!  Clever!!  The textured one is a mix of paper, fabric, and buttons!! 

Smmarrt--your pieces are always fun and full of creative uses of "stuff"...I am never throwing out a scrap of zipper or ribbon ever again!!! Grin

I received my first Fabric Art Journal Page from mariak yesterday. A perfect Thanksgiving treat. She says it is her first ever and I love it. A singing bird, music, buttons, embroidery and a wonderful quote. I sing so this is just perfect! A fantastic start to my first fabric art journal.

I received from goatgodess today and it's beyond anything I expected! Thank you so much!
She also gave me some of the interfacing that she used on my page, I think I may try to make another one now  Grin

Get ready to add to the awesomeness that is this gallery:

I am so glad you like it. It became a bit frilly! but I liked the overall look. Funny how these things morph.

Here's a pic right side up. It's me in a photo shoot about 30 years ago. I was an art director for an ad agency. This was done on a tight budget and it turned out that I was the only one who fit in the dress. So I was running back and forth between the photographer and the set. Such fun. Brings back crazy memories.

But I wanted to create a vintage look of the late forties and big bands. Hope I achieved it.
