I love journal page swaps....especially fabric ones. (recent swap: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434288.0#axzz37ueSyfAO)

The technique on Maleficent is a variety of reverse applique, layers of fabric, stitched the picture then cut away the top layer to reveal the lower layers. Edges are left raw to fray a bit giving it more texture. The quote was ironed on with fabric fusing.

For Planet Pie, I also used the reverse applique method as well as chenilling, which is a technique of layering little scraps of fabric between two fabric pieces, stitching your pattern, then cutting through all the layers (except the back) and washing and drying to get the most fraying. 

There is a great YouTube by Jamie Malden for chenilling, she calls it slashing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HaPsMLE2FQ8

And for madcrafter she got a Carl Sagan quote. I'm a scifi reader, so she could have gotten anything!



Angielou1 received a Maleficent quote. I've always loved the tall austere Maleficent character from Disney's original Sleeping Beauty. Even joined the kids one Halloween when they did Sleeping Beauty, Prince Charming and I was Maleficent. I scared young children!

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO
